Vintage Newspaper Ads II

Here I share today two more vintage ads from an old British newspaper, first one is for Mazda lamps and lightning and on this particular image I must say that when I saw the advertisement I thought it was Mazda "the Japanese automobile company", but then to my surprise I realized that it was about lightning and got curious so I did a research online to come to know that Mazda was a trademarked name registered by General Electric in 1909 for incandescent light bulbs. 

The brand name was used from 1909 through 1945 in the United States by General Electric and Westinghouse. Mazda brand light bulbs were made for decades after 1945 outside the USA, including UK.    Everyday you learn something new right?

The second ad is for the Denu-Wear children's set in London.

Enjoy using them in your projects.

Thank you,
