Serve eggs, save money…

Woman's Weekly / 4th April 1969

I’ve featured this Egg Marketing Board’s campaign before, but that lad’s expression is definitely worth sharing.

Sam’s Special

Woman's Weekly / 9th May 1969

The British Egg Marketing Board strikes again! This kind of cute little chap is sadly absent from advertising nowadays, as is the term ‘Aunt ‘Et’. I’m trying to figure out which name he’s shortening here: Hettie (presumably a shortening itself of Henrietta)? Harriet?

Egg Cookery

Woman's Own / 21st March 1969

“You can’t feed a family without breaking eggs.” I think vegan families may beg to differ, but I chose this ad because I thought it was visually striking, as well as being amusing in itself. I miss all these marketing boards for food staples; the leek pie ad was placed by the Flour Marketing Board.
