Adverts for Flatley products

advert for Flatley dryer/airer

The adverts in this section are courtesy of Camilla Wood who is A J Flatley's great granddaughter. She reports that the people that her great grandfather used in his adverts were always family members. The 'mum' who wanted the Flatley was his wife and the adverts also show her grandmother (his daughter) and her grandmother's sisters (Camilla's Great Aunts). There was also a commercial featuring Camilla's mother, but this was shortly before he died and was never shown.
