Advertising circa 1900

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.
