Amazing work Soumyadip. I badly wanted some vintage ads and i got them here. Where did u get the ads from?

Soumyadip said...

Srijith I get them from many places. Old magazines, books, the WWW and lots of other places. Occassionally readers of this blog also send in their contributions.

Mihir Shah said...

These ads really made my day! Thanks a bunch.

Would it be possible for you to post audio links of vintage ad jingles aired on Vividh Bharati in the 70s and the 80s?

Soumyadip said...

Mihir: I too would like to post old ads aired on radio. But the problem is getting hold of them. Now that you've suggested it, I'll start looking around.

Mihir Shah said...

Soumyadip, thanks for replying.

I guess the ad agencies that created those jingles or AIR would have to be contacted.

Your blog brought back a lot of fond memories. Thanks again and keep up the good work.
