11 Advertisements In The Post War USSR

Advertisements In The Post War USSR

Posted on October 11, 2011 by

‘Rabotnitsa’, 1952: bankbooks advertisement runs that ‘you can collect money for buying different things in the savings bank’.

Bonds advertisement. In the upper left corner: government stocks favour the further development of National economy of the USSR. And in red: buy 3% state premium bonds!

Tourist services ads were rare. They offered only national resorts. In the picture: Ritsa Lake advertisement. It says: a new first class hotel has opened at Ritsa Lake, 60 kilometers away from Gagra . It provides its clients with cozy rooms, a restaurant, a cafe, taxi cabs, buses, and boats. At Lake Ritsa (also in Gagra, Sukhumi and Mysser), there are holiday houses for those who come by car.

‘Ogonyok’, 1954: refrigerators advertisement. ‘Made in Saratov!’ They say that these fridges had worked well up to the ‘Perestroyka’!

    “Fridges worked well up to the Perestroyka”. Working for thirty five or more years. Only problem is these old fridges probably use a lot of electricity.

    “‘Rabotnitsa’ magazine, 1952: children’s tooth powder. Another slogan is as following: healthy teeth guarantee that you will have good health!”
    I thought that it was proven recently that bacteria on teeth increased heart attack chances
