The Internet Archive, which I’ve previously blogged on, also has a remarkable collection of classic television programs, commercials, government proceedings, and more — all available at the touch of a button for either instant streaming or download.

Right now, one of the most popular collections being viewed is classic television commercials from the 1950s and 60s, available by clicking here.

Another invaluable resource on the web; check it out.
