Selling in Detroit: 1920s Advertising in the Motor City 

As Detroit boomed in the 1920s, advertising did too. A new evolution in advertisements developed to meet the optimism of the day to sell to Detroit’s growing middle class. Detroit’s mad men pitched the newest products.

Selling in Detroit was developed in partnership with Wayne State University’s Public History Program and curated by student historians.
