Ah, the good old days. A man could really be a man then. He could hold down a solid job and provide for his family (with only the minimum education!) while his womenfolk did what they were truly meant to do – keep the house clean and pop as many babies as they could. It was heaven, pure heaven...
At least, that's what the vintage ads of '30s, '40s and '50s would have us believe.
