Check out this vintage mattress ad from a mattress company called Springwall, makers of King Koil, Eclipse and Southern Cross mattresses, which, if we’re not mistaken, are still available in the market even today.
This is an original print ad from the 1950’s, a time when innersprings were still the latest in mattress innovation. What’s so telling about this vintage ad is that the same problems with mattresses and beds are addressed: firmness, sagging (especially on the edges) and the ability to control movement with the “shock absorbers” particularly when sleeping with a partner.
The vintage poster is actually for sale on this site. What a great find, right?
