1950 Gilbert's Self Serve Food Store Easter Ad
Back in January, I did a post about Gilbert's Food Fair (the small grocery store located in the Hafely Building on Lorain's East Side) that featured some reminisces by Bill Latrany.
Well, here's an April 6, 1950 Easter-themed ad for Gilbert's, apparently before it had any tie-in with Food Fair. I love the cartoon rabbit chef illustration; he looks positively gleeful to be carving up whatever it is on that plate! (I've tried to figure out what it is.... anybody know for sure? Click on it for a closer look at this mystery meat.)
Hopefully the rabbit isn't serving up one of his own kind (unlike many well-known cannibalistic food mascots such as Hamlet, the Sugardale pig!)
