VintageAdBrowser: Cool Vintage Ad Collection Online

This website hosts cool vintage ad collection organized in 53 different categories. These range from Airlines & Aircraft to Coke to Xmas. The scans are varied, interesting and of very high quality.
When you click on each category of advertisement, you will then see them split up on the page into their various time categories. This will range from the present year right back to the end of the 19th Century. This makes it much easier to find a particular advert if you are doing research or if a particular time period interests you.
The site also has a search engine so you can find a particular advert quickly and easily. But a really cool feature of the search engine is that you can also search by colour. If you are looking for say a blue coloured advert, then just open the colour box, click on the blue square and you will then receive search results matching your colour. Very smart.
