Hi Dana:

I can understand the bottle label being B&W on a white bottle. I find it strange that the neck label is in B&W. It just seem that it would be in color. Where did you come across it.

Hi Dana:

I saw the photos and I just wonder if they posted them in B&W for some reason. Usually graphics of that era were, in my opinion, better than we have today. I used to sell Model RR signs and I found it very rare that bottle labels were printed in B&W. I have tons of them somewhere at home and none of them are in B&W. I have beer, wine and soda labels and as I said none are in B&W. The diamond shaped label would have been placed on the neck of the bottle and probably not on the bottle you showed. It would have probably been on a later bottle. The bottle shown looks very early 20th Century. I will have to look through my stuff and see what I have if I can even find it at this point.

probly a photocopy (precolour copier/scanner ) of the artist work hence the black and white .prahaps toms best option would to be contacting the local museum for label info of the product he wants so that he can find out the colours . just an option

Great collection of images for most eras! Thanks, people!!

When I was a kid the REA trucks in my area all seemed to have Camel cigarette ads on them. I have not been able to find any color images that would work for this. For that matter, I haven't been able to find any 1950's Camel ads in landscape format at all. Anyone have, or know where I can find these?

Thanks.

Dana,

I am a little late, but thank you for the post.

The use of B/W: I believe you will find those bottles are not a clear glass but similar in color and maybe even made from the same material used to make the old crock pots or jugs.

I just came across this site. It has a number of good photos of old advertising signs mingled with other advertising items.
