Behind the ads · 25. October 2016
There's enormous nostalgia in some of these adverts, even for someone like me who doesn't like looking back. My mother smoked Kensitas, and I remember when her silver wedding anniversary was approaching she knew I didn't have any money for a present, so gave me the Kensitas gift coupons she had been saving up and with them we "bought" a stainless steel (so much more with-it than silver in 1963) candlestick. I still have the candlestick, as it happens.
