Does it come with a matching oxygen tank?

This ad was placed in Australian Home Beautiful way back in August 1959. Back in the day, asbestos cement sheeting was a beaut new roofing product to make your home the bees knees.  I bet the neighbours were jealous. Not so jealous now…

Hey kids, can you spell mesothelioma?  How about asbestosis?

old magazine ad promoting asbestos cement sheeting for roofing

 

About gillianloves

I decided there was not enough laughing in my life so I set to and started to design greeting cards in addition to my other design work. I'm happy to make people smile and to show that giving something really good takes as little effort as sending something pretty ordinary. I fully believe that if you can laugh about it someday you may as well laugh about it today. And also that we are just about as happy as we try to be. But you should know, Pollyanna I'm not. Even I might want to slap her after a day or so.

    It’s amazing how products are used and we don’t find out until much later the risks we took. Thanks for sharing.

    I have been cruisin’ the real estate listings and lusting after Mid-Century Modern homes!
    Good to know.

    I live in a house that was built in 1918….maybe I shouldn’t be chewing on the windowsills.
