I ran across a few pictures of what this site titled “Unfortunate World Trade Center Old Ads” and found it interesting that the more I look, the
more I see stuff like this. It seems like the world always had a fear that the towers would be taken out at one time or another. These adds don’t
necessarily show the towers being taken out...but they are interesting at any rate. I suppose the Twin Towers were sort of a symbol here in America
and that is why they were used so often in ads.
We all know hindsight is 20/20 and I always wonder if the folks that made ads like these looked back at them like we do now after the Towers fell.
Anyway...I thought they were interesting and figured some here would too.
A brochure image for the WTC. Circa 1984
Pakistan International Airlines from 1979
This is one of the most chilling ones for me. A foreshadowing to rival any other that has existed for sure.
A Canadian company, Asbestos Corporation Limited from 1981
Magazine advertisement for Maker's Mark bourbon
October, 1976 cover of Sesame Street magazine
I find it eerie that so many ads, movies, tv shows, etc. had images akin to these in their programs/advertisments. I might not feel that way if 9/11
never happened. After all, the Statue of Liberty is in just as many and she still stands.
Mods, I was not sure where to post this since it wasn't the usual "Was it an inside job or not?" threads. Please move it if you need to.
