Advert of the times

I am in Nelson, BC, Canada so here is an advert from an other colony, Christchurch, New Zealand. When in England, I am working on a project to catalogue the Museum's collection of timetables and many of them have adverts which reflect the social climate of the time. As recently as 1950, when I was 9 years old, an advert such as this one was common place. Imagine the outcry this advert would have caused half a centuary later.
