revealed that the Flatley Infra-Super was mentioned either first or second by
every visitor who was asked for his or her views on the most interesting feature
Adverts for Flatley products
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.
