Sept. 12, 2011 - PRLog -- A vast private collection of vintage print advertisements from the mid 1800s to early 1900s is now available in an online library comprised of over 35 categories showcasing various aspects of life at the turn of the 20th century.  The library can be viewed at the new website:  The site, which displays the collection for the first time publicly, creates a diverse historical record not found elsewhere on the web of products, services, transportation, educational institutions, literature, art, organizations and many other factors that shaped the lives of early Americans during this particular era.

Jay Paull, who operates the site, is pleased to make the collection available for others to enjoy.  “It’s highly unusual to have this many ads, some over 170 years old, together and in excellent condition that reveal such varied aspects of life from that period,” he says.  “The wide range of subjects and topics will appeal to virtually anyone’s interests.”

The website, which is constantly expanding as more and more ads from the collection are digitized, is designed for easy navigation and creates a unique repository of print advertisements concentrated on that historical period.  The library’s rich content can be viewed without charge and the advertisements are not for sale.

The website was launched in 2011 to create a distinguished electronic library of vintage print advertisements from the mid 1800s to early 1900s.  The source of the ads is a vast private collection that has not been shown previously publicly.  In over 35 library categories, the site showcases a wide variety of aspects influencing early Americans’ lives such as clothing, food, music, education, travel, publications, construction, literature, recreation and numerous others.  The site is continuously expanding as additional ads from the collection are digitized.
