Happy Mother’s Day from the Duke Digital Collections

The clever curators at the Duke Digital Collections have compiled a humorous look at mothers. Culling from the archives filled with advertising images, Rich Murray fills his blog post with commentary on the somewhat unusual nature of mom imagery used in ads. My favorite is an ad for Postum, a coffee-free beverage designed to prevent anxious ladies from being nervous and irritable.

Perhaps I should drink that by the gallon. Anyway, happy mother’s day, moms!
