As travelogues go this one doesn't quite cut it – good job Lanry household bleach can!

Travelogue 1960 5 mins


This short travelogue isn't quite what it's cracked up to be. A dramatic opening and some beautiful Welsh panoramas aren't there just to entice you to visit Wales - cinema audiences were also persuaded to consider the benefits of Lanry bleach. Don't be fooled in to thinking that's alcohol at the end - it's bleach alright, produced in Bolton and so potent that it was used to clean pavements. This is an entertaining if somewhat confused piece of advertising that perhaps worked best in the cinemas of its day.
