As calculators became more widespread in the first half of the 20th century, the tenor of advertising varied to reflect target customers (small businesses, large corporations, engineering firms) and the general mood of the country as it moved through two world wars, the Roaring 20s, the Great Depression, and the post-WWII economic and technological boom.
