Nice looking Coke ad from the '40's. But those medicinal claims... :roll:

Not sure where this comes from. I'd like to see the whole ad.

This is in a magazine I found in an antique shop. The magazine is American Childhood, December 1949 edition. "The Modern Magazine for Primary Teachers".

That's really interesting to see the creative process, isn't it? It's amazing how the rough sketch is a thing of beauty in
itself and how it already has all the vital elements in distilled form.

It is interesting! I'd never thought about there being a process like that.

A bit of a weird ad, as it was published 2 days after Thanksgiving in 1929. Interestingly, Thanksgiving was also on November 28th in 1929, 90 years ago. As a bonus, I'll post a photo of Captain Nemo, a float that was in the parade on November 28th, 1929.

A bit of an odd mascot for Life Cereal. What kind of creature is he/she/it?

It's REALLY weird, but he's supposed to be a protein. I love this ad!
