'FRANKENSTEIN ELECTRIC NEWSPAPER ADS'






I mentioned briefly in one of my first posts about the series of Television adverts which featured Casualty's Clive Mantel as playing the Frankenstein Monster, these were adverts for Electricity; that the general public had the chance to buy shares when the main Electricity company was separating into 12 regional electricity companies. The TV ads also featured other monstrous characters such as the Bride of Frankenstein, a son, Hunchback, there may of been others.

Here are 5 of the newspaper advertisements that appeared during the time, about 1991.

Great site! I grew up a horror fan in Scotland in the 80s...I didn't realise there was so much horror-themed stuff around.

Glad that you like the site Countess Duckula. It is quite surprising whathorror stuff did come out here in this country, there is a lot that I never knew about untill many years later.
