I was doing some family history research in newspapers from Hawaii circa 1900 and found these ads. I thought these were kind of interesting ... so I thought I'd pass them along.
|Congo Gnat Oil? (1902)|
|"Swell Hats" for the well-dressed Hawaiian Victorian lady (1900)|
|Cannot figure who is more the dandy ... the poodle or the gent? (1894)|
|Seems like you can still buy these in Hawaii today (1900)|
|Cheap Fashion ... 1900 style|
|Wine ... Vintage 1902 ... the finest tonic and invigorant!|
FYI: I research old newspaper on a Library of Congress website: Chronicling America. It has digitized newspapers from 1836 to 1922, and a directory of newspapers as far back as 1670. Great research resource.
