Westinghouse commercials from the 1950s.

Recommended Posts

A few 1950s Westinghouse time capsules from my TV advertising collection.


I have a huge vintage print advertising collection as well as the TV commercial collection. I've been working on getting it scanned, but very slow going. There is somewhere in the area of 45,000 to 50,000  8.5x11 to 11x14 large format ads from the late 1800s to the 1960s.

Thanks for sharing! I love watching old commercials. I've been noticing some popping up occasionally on facebook where someone has been showing them there.

I never was into commercials. Within film collection circles there are only so many areas of collection. Commercials is one of the areas. One day I got ahold of an old 16mm commercial about the Slinky. That got me interested.

I've put up more of the Westinghouse commercials since I opened this thread and still have more to do.

This one is pretty interesting.  'The Westinghouse Automatic Twin Juice Fountain' And look at the old glass milk bottles the milk man would delivery daily.


I also put up one about Westinghouse Nuclear Power from the 1950's.

There's some fantastic moments in Mona Lisa Smile where they're aping the style of 1950s commercials.

I think this may be possibly the most misogynistic thing I've ever posted on the internet.
