Asset Type: Images
Website: http://library.duke.edu/digitalcollections/eaa/

This extensive collection hosted by Duke University Library includes hundreds of vintage advertisements from dozens of American companies ranging from Camel Cigarettes to Wrigley’s chewing gum. This collection includes both newspaper/magazine ads as well as photographs of billboards from the late 19th Century and the early 20th Century. Most if not all of the items in the collection are in the public domain, despite what the quite conservative and ‘safe’ academic use policy states.
