While I am not normally a fan of flash heavy sites, I did find myself pretty immersed in the Old Orient Museum. So lost that I found myself spending over an hour sifting through their gallery of restored Chinese and Japanese advertisements from the 1920s and 1930s. I especially enjoyed their section that showed the before and after on their restoration work. They even did a good job of choosing music that set the mood well for the site and while I lowered the volume on the music I never full shut it off. If you enjoy vintage advertising, it is definitely a site you should have bookmarked.
