It happened with VHS tapes and it will somehow happen with all-digital content. It's sort of exciting and sort of scary, but to make ourselves feel safer at the end of the day we can always indulge in powerful images of sensory nostalgia.

43 Interesting and Sometimes Outrageous Vintage Food Advertisements

Some of these are kind of cool. Some of these are a little shocking. Some of them are gross. Some of them are straight-up weird. Post World War II America was a place of seemingly endless prosperity.
