Great Old Australian Advertising

Some wonderful art here I think you will agree, these classic old vintage adverts are from the 1940's, im not sure of the artists name on the Nestles one with the baby, the signanure is hard to read - but I think her first name was Maud.  We have another similar one for Nestles (drawn by the same artist) with the baby in the bath! with the same hat on!
