This site has vintage ads for products from alcohol to candy. Some of the ads are print from the 1800's. You might like to use these in any type of lessons. In art you could compare the color schemes to today or the style as compared to an artist of the time period. Math could compare prices of the items from different times. In geography students might research where the products are manufactured and make a time line of the progress of production. Language arts might use these are writing prompts or have students write an ad campaign for the product for today's consumers. Music students could write a jingle for the product, or compare the product's jingle to today's product jingles. Science can examine the chemistry of the products and their ad claims. Health students should see what products have good health claims in the past and find research that backs their claim or disproves the claim. Use your imagination to share these old time products with students.
