I was told that unless I remove those images they can not continue to allow me to display ads on that or indeed on any other of my blogs that also contain images of nudity - which is perfectly possible, seeing as I love art.
I would have liked to contact whoever is the decider in the AdSense team, to inform him/her that neither Tamara de Lempicka nor François-Emile Barrauda were pornographers, nor did they produce anything other than quality content (not to say there is no quality porn) - but the same mind that could not tolerate the sight of these works of art understandably will also not tolerate to be contacted. They appear to be spooked by many things with no rational motive.
In this the AdSense team is not alone. For example, the team in charge of supervising the content of blogs has become sadly known for its tendency to feel upset over gay sites (including those that, like mine, are not pornographic) deleting them without justifying so to their authors - which makes perfect sense for, in truth, how does one justify a morally indefensible aversion? How does one justify a prejudice?
Seeing as it's not possible to talk to these people, nor would they understand me if I did, and they'd just get emotionally stressed for nothing if I were to do so; and seeing as I would not wish to cause any more emotional distress to people who already worry themselves so much over things that don't matter, I thought it best to simply transfer all my blogs to Tumblr, something which was very easy to do and not a bother at all.
And it's done! The new address is Vintage Ads and there I will continue to do much the same that I've been doing here. So if you've liked it so far, just follow the link.
I'd like to thank Blogger for having served me so well throughout these years and I hope those responsible for these reprehensible decisions keep taking the pills. See you soon! :)

"The Breakfast for Every Kind of Morning
The breakfast everyone likes best! That's easiest for you! And the most economical!
Ready as soon as the coffee is
For the ordinary morning
So healthful and 'filling' - so good for children!
Give them Aunt Jemima pancakes. They'll love them - they'll scramble down early - they'll eat 'Good breakfast'!
And the (?), tender cakes are so healthful, so nourishing - you couldn't give them anything better to start them off for school. They're just the breakfast to give them morning after morning.
For the 'slept-late' morning
So QUICK - so EASY - to make
No mixing to do - no measuring - everything is ready mixed in the flour - even the sweet milk. You just add water, give the batter a brisk beating, and less than a minute later you are lifting the tender, golden cakes off the griddle.
And they are so economical, too! These Aunt Jemima breakfasts cost less than one of meat or eggs!
For the morning you have guests
Perfect cakes EVERY time
When you want to make sure that breakfast goes off delightfully, serve Aunt Jemima pancakes. They are prepared so carefully for you that you cannot help making perfect, brown, tender pancakes every time!
Your guests will exclaim over them - they have so much more delicious flavor than ordinary pancakes. The sweet milk - powdered and (?) in - the specially ground flours - give Aunt Jemima pancakes a flavor you cannot get in any others. Order a package of Aunt Jemima Buckwheat Flour, too, when you order the Pancake flour.
Make muffins and waffles and breakfasts of Aunt Jemima Pancake Flour, too. See how light and fine flavored they are.
Send for the jolly Rag Dolls
Send one Aunt Jemima box tag (either Pancake or Buckwheat Flour) with only six cents in stamps and get one of the famous Aunt Jemima Rag Dolls. Or four flour tags and and only twenty four cents you can get the whole jolly family."

In its flower-born fragrance Cashmere Bouquet Soap suggests the riffled treasures of an old-fashioned garden. Delicate, yet lasting; piquant, yet refined; reminiscent, yet alusive; favored by those of particular taste today, as it was in Grandmother's time.
Nor is that exquisite perfume its sole attraction, for Cashmere Bouquet Soap is luxuriant in its lather and so wholesomely pure that it is safe for baby's delicate skin. It is an economical soap too, wearing down thriftily to a tissue-like thinness, and 'hard milled' so that it does not soften and waste as do some soaps, when left wet in the soap dish."
