Had planned for a special isspecial on Independence Day. But now have to do with this kamchalau one. Anyway here are some advertisements which were published exactly sixty years back on (or around) August 15, 1947.
The following were published on the front page of The Times of India, Bombay on I-Day.
Baliwalla & Homi Ltd., 355 Hornby Rd Etc., Bombay
It Happened in Brooklyn starring Frank Sinatra and playing at Metro
These are sourced from The Indian Express (who have digitally altered the text, thereby killing the real feel) who in turn got the original from the Nehru Memorial Museum and Library, New Delhi.

Parle’s Gluco & Monaco biscuits
