Dutch artists have created some amazing commercial artwork over the years. Let’s take a time machine and go back many decades with the help of these wonderful Dutch vintage posters from years past.

That’s a lot of milk! We know the Dutch are dairy obsessed. That’s why they are the tallest people on the planet!

I think a single entrance ticket is now around 20 EUR. So can somebody calculate the inflation rate from 52 cents? ๐Ÿ™‚ To be fair, this poster is probably from the 1950’s or even older…

Good old AH. Now we know why your assortment feels so old fashioned…But we will give you credit for trying hard to modernize in a steady and age-appropriate one-new-product-introduction-per-year pace ๐Ÿ™‚

    According to my dad the Artis one is from the 50’s. and the last one clearly is after WWII because before that we didn’t have ths “Germans on our beaches” obsession ๐Ÿ™‚

    Oh dear! I thought the myth that Dutch height is
    due to milk consumption had been buried long ago. The main reason is the heightist tendencies of Dutch women who almost exclusively choose taller partners.

      As a 90 years old English lady I too mainly had taller friends ,i was 5.9in and the Dutch boys stationed in London ,chiefly Military policemen were taller than I was. I also was in the army, ATS, stationed in London and sadly the war broke up friendships. and I have failed to trace my friend who would be 92 now.

      In fact it is a protection mechanism – to keep the head above water if the land becomes inundated.

    There`s however optimal in any respect male height and it is within 6-6`2“, but above 6`3“ is transitional to giantism good only for basketball or volleyball, lol. Therefore, the taller isn`t the better and tall women should consider it.
