Product Placement World War One style

I like the Dubonnet magazine ad from 1900 and was looking for more when these Dubonnet postcards turned up from 1914-1915...


  1. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dubonnet

    "Dubonnet was first sold in 1846 by Joseph Dubonnet, in response to a competition run by the French authorities to find a way of persuading French Foreign Legionnaires in North Africa to drink quinine.[2] Quinine combats malaria but is very bitter."

  2. Interesting images and article. Thanks

  3. I wonder if the Dubonnet signs in the images are "real" or "photo-shopped". A "Dou Doubon Dubonnet" sign in blue and white would be authentic on French rural buildings for World War two wargaming and dioramas.
