From the Digital Box Set: This episode is about the history of the classified ads. We trace the very first classified ad in North America through to the explosion of classifieds online. At any given time, a glance at the classifieds tells us exactly what we were wearing, what we had lost, what we wanted to find, and how we courted. From "Lost and Found," to "Help Wanted," to the wild and wacky world of "Personal" ads, the classified section is an incredible chronicle of our existence.
