If you’ve been wondering about the twitter feed in the right sidebar of this blog then let me help. It’s a little project of Birmingham Archives and Heritage in which we publish real advertisements from newspapers we hold in our collections.
It was originally conceived to use the transitory medium of twitter to publish the ephemera of the past. If you’re a fan of the archaic use of language or even interested in the kind of products marketed before regulation was imposed then hopefully you’ll be interested in it. Follow us here.
