— Ask For Schweppes

Both of my parents worked for Cadbury/Schweppes, so it’s fun to see this vintage advertising for the company’s tables waters in the Eagle Steamers Of London (!) travel guide from 1937.

— The World Of Books

‘The world of books is the most remarkable creation of man, Nothing else that he builds ever lasts. Monuments fall, nations perish, civilizations grow old and die out, and after an era of darkness new races build others. But in the world of books are volumes that have seen this happen again and again and yet live on, still young, still fresh as the day they were written, still telling men’s hearts of the hearts of men centuries dead.’
