    Ad from 1912 youth's companion

    Went to the flea market today and browsed through a bunch of youth's companion magazines from the early 1900's.
    Came across some cool ads.


    Here's one for the "H.H.H." knife


    This last one was just funny.

    Thats awesome. I love old magazines. It tells you so much about what people were interested in at that point in time. I loved the ad for HHH tool knife. LOL It also made me happy to see that some things are just always popular.

    Ha, yea we better get our pre orders for the Tool Knife in now!
    The vendor at the flea market told me he might have more kitchen and cutlery specific prints or catalogs.
    He said he'd dig around and bring whatever he found next month, I hope he finds some cool stuff.
    I'll be sure to share if I score anything.
