Some examples of Soviet ads from the times where Soviet people only had the Soviet goods. Well in general those ads had a different purpose back then. They were not trying to compete with each other, but rather educate – telling people about new products Soviets industries are making.
“Soviet Champagne – best grape wine”
“Nylon stockings – nice looking, durable, hygienic”
“Smoke Aurora cigarettes”
“Take some pleasure trips away from city in day time and in night time. All ships have radio. Bars are open. “
“Uzbekistan stories. Buy the books written by Uzbekistan authors”.
“Poppy flowers: perfume and cologne”
“Rain you don’t have chance on me, I won’t come out of the home without rubber shoes”
“Drink beer from beer factories Main-Beer”
“Canned crabs, you can cook a lot of tasty foods from canned crabs”
“Green peas. Green peas are tasty food and nice side dish”
“Force yourself to eat black caviar”
“Sturgeon caviar is tasty and nutritious”
“Sewing machines from Singer company”
“Fruit and berries juices”
Another caviar ad
“Demand sausages everywhere”
So that’s it!
