The Great Advertising Scandal of 1983

So I was thumbing through our archives today (Yes, thumbing through — we keep old issues in massive books. None of this newfangled internet business for this newspaper, thanks) and came across this gem of an advertisement, which was published in Park Cities People circa 1983.

Kind of risque, no? I would research “Private Moments” to see if the intimate portraiture company is still in business, but I don’t want to risk that kind of Google search on my work computer. Anyone?

    Wow, the 80′s. How about searching for the name of the photographer?

    I searched “Intimate Moments”. It comes up with lingerie. I searched “Intimate Moments Photography and there are a couple (Nebraska, Ontario…) but none in Texas. I’d say marketing is to blame! They should have been advertising for hair removal.

    maybe you guys could do some research, identify and contact the models – and get them to reproduce the pose 30 years later?

    Hey…isn’t that Kirk Dooley?! Modeling for his own paper to save some production costs no doubt!

    Wow, if you had posted this before last week’s election, this would have been some pretty low Chicago style politicking. Dig a little deeper on who the female model is, you’ll be surprised, she still looks great!

    Oldtimer, are you trying to tell us that’s Tincy Miller?

    Is it Mrs. Branch?

    Ann Romney.

    Definitely not Mrs. Branch. Her father is Vic Salvino and there is no way she would do that.
