Old Ads & Classifieds / 09.03.2012

Wow, these are fascinating. This is the best "Old Ads and Classifieds" post yet. Scanning the Washington Post from February 29th, 1912 (another leap year) I came across these, frozen in time. The first one below is an advertisement that has both the Carpathia and the Lusitania on it. The former being the ship that rescued the survivors of the Titanic and the latter having an ill-fated rendezvous with a German torpedo.
