Kodak Ads from 1964 to 1969

Don't forget to visit b.vikki vintage on Etsy!

I love these Kodak ads from the mid to late 1960s. The families, couples and scenes depicted are positively idyllic. Also, the color saturation is so rich and deep, it makes the photos really come to life.

Is it just me? Or is Père Noël a bit creepy in this ad? It's all very I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus.

The ad above almost makes me want to get a vintage Kodak camera... Almost! They're fairly inexpensive on Etsy, but I don't know if I'm ready to pick up ANOTHER hobby or arbitrary interest.

The ad above is by far my favorite of the bunch. The colors are outstanding (I went through a pink and orange phase in high school...). And the female model's hair and headband are adorable.

This simple to understand three-step copy reminds me of Peggy's Take it - Break it - Share it - Love it Popsicle pitch on season two of Mad Men.

Up next: more vintage wedding photos... this time from the mid 1950s and vintage 1960s Pepsi ads.

  1. these are great, all the oranges and yellows and pinks!

  2. I love the vintage kodak ads! There was this place called eclecticity on the north side of chicago. They sold everything vintage and the old brownie cameras. Too bad they closed down 2 years ago...

  3. Awesome stuff, the cameras look so cool, like if they were from 200 years ago.
