Sam Henri Gold generously posted for all to see his extensive collection of Apple promotional materials. There are images going back to the 1970s, and videos starting in the 1990s.

Everything in this collection is organized by decade then year. Gold has a handful of items from the 1970s, but nothing at all from the 1980s. That may be a temporary snafu, though. The collection really takes off in the 1990s. And it’s quite up to date, including plenty of videos from 2019.

Don’t miss the very first TV ads for the PowerBook in 1991, or the iMac in 1998. Watch early “Get a Mac” ads from 2006. There are the first iPhone commercials in the 2007 folder, and early iPad ads in 2010. Catch the hubbub about the Apple Watch in 2015.

Jump over to Gold’s collection on Google Drive to start feeling the nostalgia.

Anyone who gets into this sort of thing should follow Cult of Mac’s long-running Today in Apple history series.
