The adverts were one of the things which first drew me to the Victorian era. There's something quite innocent about the way they promote concoctions of cocaine, tobacco and morphine, completely unaware of the consequences. It's the feeling of an era when many things were far more simple, an easier and more laid back way of life (although we know this was far from true for many.).
I wonder what people will think of our adverts a hundred years from now? Will they look back as fondly as we do?
