    Okay, I’m going to go out on a limb and guess this is an advertisement for music lessons for young girls.

  2. Jim Says:

    My guess is corsets. But I wouldn’t want to go out on a limb like Kay is going.
    Back in those days a ladies’ underwear was very private so they could show only how the end product, fancy looking ladies, looked. Even some as this very young lady on the right dressed for show.

    I’m guessing laundry detergent–delicate, for fine clothes.

    My guess is laxatives. “Help your child at those awkward times’ maybe.

  5. Judy Says:

    Is the advertiser the New York Times?
