Finding Military History In Advertising


I like to collect images of product advertisements that use historical references therein. The Highland Fruit Growers Association in California has a couple of interesting ads to promote their citrus oranges.

And here is an advertisement for biscuits from the UK. I wonder if Huntley & Palmers still exist? My understanding is that "biscuits" in the UK are what we call "cookies" in the USA.



  1. You can still get Huntley and Palmers biscuits .

  2. Huntley and Palmer biscuits are more akin to crackers rather than cookies...they are not sweet, but rather the kind of thing you have with cheese, after dinner.
