I guess I "sort of" collect books of matches from different casinos.

I grabbed them not to collect but to use; I have about a thousand or so now.

I also collected matches over the years. I had quite a few in a large bowl, but I threw them out years ago. It would have been fun going through them to see the places I collected them from.

I used to have a collection of keys. Old skeleton keys. Usually picked up in garage or rummage sales.

And although I didn't collect them, I went on several hunting trips for antique bottles with a friend. Pretty cool if it's actually in one piece and not just more broken glass.

Now I collect dust.

Sharing a few more "interesting" ads from Life Magazine, 1959.



I don't recall seeing Bugs Bunny used in any other advertising:






Different approach in the text here:

About the TWA ad...
6 hours 25 minutes NYC to London is still the approximate time it takes to complete the flight.

60 years later and standard jet service is not really any faster.
Concorde was quicker obviously, but no longer in service.
