Advertising Slogans Celebrate Their 150th Birthday
It's hard to believe, but advertising slogans are now officially 150 years old. They started out humbly, but the interest in them has grown considerably

advertising that makes such a difference is a great thing, because they've managed to sell millions of dollars worth of products to people all over the
world during the
