These newspaper adverts are from an Isle of Wight County Press dated April 1950.

There's an archive at our Pyle Street office containing all our newspapers since the County Press launched in 1884.

However, this one was dropped in to us by someone who found it while clearing out a house. We enjoyed poring over it, and thought we'd share it with you.

Scroll through the adverts above and take a trip down memory lane

These days, County Press advertising encompasses digital and social media, as well as the print edition which is one of the biggest selling local weekly newspapers in the country!
