This advert appeared in the Belfast Telegraph in 1962.
We would all now recognise 2 or 3 things that would not be seen as socially acceptable in this advert, or even nonconforming to current employment practices. Ageism, sexism … and possibly a few more ‘ism’s’. But this was of a time and a age, and seemed right then.
I also had a strange feeling when I read through some of the Department of Commerce documents in PRONI (Public Records Office Northern Ireland) at the continued focus on how many employees there would be at any one time, which was OK, …… but the focus was also on how many of these were male, which again reflected where society was in the 50’s and 60’s.
