This week Sepia Saturday’s challenge inspired me to go through the archives to find images of old billboards. For more Sepia Saturday posts click here.

  1. Is there a way to go a bit electric the old fashioned way? And I haven’t heard anyone use the term Yankee like ever and I’ve live in the South. And how big is the Australian whisky. market?

    • In North Carolina and Ireland, I’ve been called a Yankee or Yank. I do think in Maine they referent to cheapskates as Yanks. I heard that in Boston and Maine.

    • If I go down South, even today, someone’s bound to call me a Yankee within a few days. I also think the Irish call us Yanks. It makes me bristle, but some do.

  2. I particularly love the “go all-electric” ad showing a ringer washer — which my grandmother actually used! Particularly in the case of the stove, this power company ad was likely aimed at weaning people off of gas and toward a so-called “medallion” home. But anyone who has been through a power outage knows that a gas stove is a good thing to have when the lights and fridge go out!
