A few nice advertisement of business, images I found:
1969 Ad, Couple with Cocktails Wearing Formal Wear Walking on Beach, Watched by Girl in Bikini, “What Sort of Man Reads Playboy?”
Image by classic_film
Another in a series of vintage 1960s Playboy self promotion advertisements – this 1969 advert features an attractive, well-off couple in formal wear strolling through the tide along the beach with fancy cocktails in hand, while a young pretty girl in a bikini looks on. Presumably, based on the text below, they are in Hawaii.
"An on-the-go young guy for whom the sky is the limit. And he soars into it often – for everything from a romantic adventure to a business venture. Playboy is read by 1,353,000 men under 50 who took three or more vacation or personal air trips within the past year, some 857,000 men 18-34 who took three or more air trips for business. Highest of any magazine. And when he wants to idle with an idol, he heads for Hawaii. Playboy leads all magazines in men under 35 who have traveled to Hawaii within the past five years. If you have some travel plans of your own, go with Playboy. It’s right on any schedule. (Sources: Simmons and B.R.I. Project to Current Circulation.)"

Portrait of a young girl by Alfred Bock (1861-1865)

Carte de visite.
Studio of Alfred Bock, City Photographic Establishment, 140 Elizabeth Street, Hobart Town.
Found in an antique shop in New Town, Hobart (for !).
Alfred Bock (1835-1920) was one of the pioneers of Australian photography. He started taking photographs when he was a boy, when his stepfather, the convict engraver and society portraitist Thomas Bock, purchased a camera from a visiting Frenchman in 1843. Bock had been impressed by daguerreotypes (by Richard Beard) belonging to Bishop Nixon, who had just arrived in the colony. Thomas Bock later established Hobart’s first permanent photographic studio in 1847, his attempts in 1843 having been thwarted by Baron George Goodman who was visiting Hobart and asserted his patent rights on the daguerreotype process when he saw Bock’s advertisement. Alfred Bock took over the running of his stepfather’s home studio in 1855, which he announced in the press one week after his death:
"DAGUERREOTYPE ESTABLISHMENT, 46, CAMPBELL-STREET, Near the Penitentiary Chapel, Hobart Town. MR. ALFRED BOCK begs to inform his FRIENDS and the PUBLIC generally, that the above Establishment is conducted by him, on behalf of his Mother, and Family; and he hopes his proficiency, is sufficiently well-known to secure him that portion of public support which has so long been kindly granted to his late Father. The business is open daily from half-past nine a.m. to 4 p. m., but he would wish, both for the convenience of sitters as well as his own, a notice to be given, either the day before or the morning, of an intended visit. A few specimens on view at the house. N.B.—Engraving of every kind executed in the best manner. March 26, 1855." – trove.nla.gov.au/newspaper/article/2481916
He maintained a keen interest in every stage of the development of photography in Australia, and it is believed he was the first to introduce the carte-de-visite to Hobart in 1861. From 1858 to 1865 he operated a studio at 140 Elizabeth Street, where this portrait was taken, which means this could possibly be an example of one of Tasmania’s earliest CDVs. – source: ‘Thomas Bock as a Photographer’ by Chris Long in Thomas Bock: Convict Engraver, Society Portraitist by Diane Dunbar (Launceston: Queen Victoria Museum & Art Gallery, 1991).
