Sometimes when I look at old newspapers I come across the same advertisement in newspapers from different places and in different languages. I think this one here is interesting. The above advertisement was in the Straits Times in Singapore, while the one below was from a Thai newspaper (I can’t recall which one). If I remember correctly, they are from the 1930s. It is interesting how the woman in the Thai version has been made to look more Asian, but not completely. Perhaps the intent was to still include something of the “Allure of the West.”
