Venue Abbey House Museum
A peep into the history of advertising.
Take a nostalgic and critical look at the history of advertising and branding in Leeds and beyond. This exhibition explores how companies have lured us into buying their products, whether we need them or not. Come to see both familiar and forgotten brands and explore how advertising slogans, imagery and design have persuaded shoppers to part with their money through history.
Be transported back to the 19th century and stroll the Victorian streets with the authentically recreated shops, pub and houses at Abbey House Museum.
