Old gun and ammo advertisements can be interesting to view from our more modern perspective. Thought it might be fun to have a place to post them and get a few chuckles, or nostalgic sighs. Makes ya wonder which magazines these were in. Could be especially interesting if some of you collectors can match a really old ad with a photo of the gun you now have. A few to start with:
Musical instrument Viola Poster Font Violin family

Sleeve Font Poster Illustration Vintage clothing

Poster Font Newspaper Happy Publication

Arthur savage born in 1857. Savage Arms was producing muskets for the Union Army in 1861. Arthur Savage wiould have been 14 years old in 1861 at the begining of the Civil War? I think a man named Barrett owned that Savage Arms company, So there were 2 American Savage Arms.
I was allowed to shoot a Savage Musket as a teen age boy, They were very fine arms.
