Well, it's about time to start thinking about Christmas. Actually, the decorations have been up at Midway Mall for a while now! But it's still a good time to think about buying some Christmas cards (that is unless you have a box stashed away from last year's bargain bin.)
Fifty years ago, this ad for Trotter's Office Supply in Lorain appeared in a November 1959 issue of the Lorain Journal. I love the artwork! The snowman looks kind of like a clean-shaven Oliver Hardy, and the surprisingly scrawny Santa Claus looks like he had been hitting the bottle! Maybe he was going to fatten up and sober up for Christmas!
