LEFT INSIDE: Smith & Wesson Advertisement

Not really left inside, but found inside a 1915 magazine while I was doing some research for an article. Thought it a timely example of how some things haven't changed in over a century.

  1. There's something really off with the perspective - that is unless the shooter is holding his revolver within a millimetre or two of his right eye.

    Something I would caution against.

  2. I'm surprised it wasn't made into a book plate--"return this book, or else," or something like that.

  3. An unfortunate truth, John. An ugly illustration.

  4. An ad that would neither have been possible than or now in Canada where it has always been difficult to purchase handguns.

  5. I like these old black-and-white ads — they tell a story.
