With Christmas just around the corner, here are some festive adverts from bygone days. All of the advertisements were featured in the Leven Advertiser. Above is a feature on G.W. Douglas the Butcher of Leven Road, Lundin Links, dating to 10 December 1903 - clearly it was time to order that festive turkey!
Next is Andrew Somerville's Grocery and a piece from 8 December 1928. Note that the Plum Puddings and Mince Meat were "actually made in our own kitchen". Bowls could be returned.
Back in 1907, phonographs (or gramophones) were a popular choice of gift - you could get yours at T.G. Wishart of Upper Largo - an interesting sideline to his usual cycle, motor and lawn mower repair work.
To keep ailments at bay over the festive season, Andrew Hogg could offer various treatments or a simple hot water bottle to keep you warm (21 December 1905).
The curious advert above from 17 December 1903 asks folks to hand in their bowls to 1 Bridge House Lundin Mill in return for threepence worth of potted meat!
Finally, below is an advertisement for a Sale of Work by the Largo Parish Church Women's Guild - no doubt plenty of options for Christmas gifting to be had there.
