All materials on this site pertain to the Bangor Punta Era (1964-1984). Some of the companies still exist today and links to their current websites are provided under External Resources.
Bangor Punta existed during a rapidly changing time period and much of their marketing materials are a reflection of the time period for which they were originally released. Students can make note of the ad copy used during this period and compare it to the modern advertising copy. How is it similar? How does it differ, and in what respects?
The idea for this website section was to present an historical homage to a hard-charging large corporation typical of the post WWII period.
Take a stroll down memory lane - and enjoy the ride.
