The Sell: Australian Advertising 1790s To 1990s

Step back in time, into the ads of Australia’s past. Through highlights from the Library’s vast collections, this exhibition explores how Australian advertising has used words, images and sound to inform and persuade. It traces how advertising has evolved as society and technology have changed, asking what it reveals about the everyday lives of Australians from the 1790s to the 1990s.
