Vintage Australian Print Ads

Vintage print ads sourced from Australian magazines and newspapers. The ads themselves sometimes originate from the UK or US though. And yes, Australia used to use pounds (prior to 1966).

The ads range from 1930 to 1992.

Many of these ads come from my own collection of magazines, however the 1933-1953 Women's Weekly ads are from the National Library of Australia's Trove website (Women's Weekly ads from later years are from my own growing collection), and the handful of newspaper ads I've uploaded are from newspapers.com.
