Reclame din 1924 / Ads from 1924

Cautand prin arhiva foto am dat peste aceste reclame. Sunt preluate dintr-un anuar din 1924. De remarcat 1) cateva mici greseli in ortografia numelor straine si 2) obsesia pentru masini americane, in mod special Ford. In 1924 erau inmatriculate in Romania cam 10,000 autovehicule.

Bogdan Beldianu a publicat, acum vreun an, o serie superba de articole referiotare la garajele interbelice din Bucuresti pe blogul sau typ3forever ; poate a dat si de garajele pomenite aici.

Looking through my photo archive I came across these old ads from an annual published in 1924. Of inters are 1) the occasionall misspellings of foreign names; and 2) the obsession with American cars, mainly Ford. In 1924 there were already circa 10,000 vehicles in Romania.

About a year ago, on his blog typ3forever, Bogdan Beldianu published a fascinating set of articles about surviving pre-war garages in Buchharest. Perhaps some of the garages shown here have been found by him, too.
