Singapore advertising in the 50's and 60's


Took a picture from a friend's magazine of the 50s just the other day. It was an old jewellery ad from one of  the many Chinatown goldsmiths in Singapore. I remember some of the jewellery styles from my mum's old collection especially that of the insignia ring. Singapore 's advertising scene at that time was probably very influenced by that of the British with just drawings and words. The era of models and artiste endorsements came much later. I would love to look out for more of these vintage Singapore advertisements as it shows the trends of fashion and style of the different eras.
