Ads in newspapers have always evolved, always trying to appeal to the culture, needs and beliefs of the day. Looking back at historic ads gives a look at the way people thought and lived in different eras. 

However, as times change, looking back also helps you to see how much those cultural beliefs have changed. 

Historic ads published in the Daily Herald promoted everything from women's clothes and children's toys to cigarettes and even alcohol. Several ads published as early as the 1920s probably wouldn't make it into print today. 

These 10 ads were all published in historic editions of the Daily Herald.
