Must Be in the Fifties

You know, all that happened a long time ago.

What’s past is passed, the culture has moved on now.

Mistakes were made, but it’s time to get over it, all right?

I say, let’s let bygones be bygones.

Thanks to classic car image enthusiast and Flickr user SwellMap for giving permission to use this fantastic bit of 1950s advertising memorabilia. To be clear, it didn’t really say that patronising thing – and any offence caused by the story is entirely my fault…
