It's interesting to have a look at credit card advertisements from a time when we were all pretty naive about the whole business. What started as a diners club card became a way of life for Americans just a couple decades later.
So, here's some credit card and a few other money related ads, back before guys like Samuel L. Jackson and Alec Baldwin were telling us to go into debt.
The good ol' days, when you had to always worry about having enough cash on hand. Credit cards and ATM's were nonexistent, so not being able to come up with enough dough at the register was a common stress.
