Yardley - Put Your Best Face Forward

I came across these fab posters on flickr so I thought I'd share them with you all. Yardley ran these adverts from 1942-3 showing women engaging in war work with patriotic messages reminding women to 'put their best face forward' and keep up morale.


  1. These are gorgeous! I love old advertising :) Thank you so much for your comments on my blog - I'm naughty and download series before they get to Aus because we just lag so far behind! That's why I've been able to watch Boardwalk Empire and Downton Abbey (also highly recommended!).

    You live in Sydney too? Hasn't this weather just been awful?

  2. Hi, nice post. This is an interesting and very informative topic. Thanks for sharing your ideas.
