Band Aid

Woman's Own / 20th March 1970

Sigh. An ad from a more innocent time, where the word ‘gang’ could be used without negative connotations, and plasters were sold in metal canisters. I wonder if selling metal canisters nowadays, to be refilled at a chemist, would be a good way to cope with the large amount of card waste that must occur from modern card boxes, although it’s possibly more trouble than it’s worth.

Anyway, the main reason I put this up was because the boys in the ad look rather sweet, and I was taken by the phonetic spelling of ‘thousands’. I’m sure kids used to look cuter in the late ’60s and early ’70s.
