Fire Prevention Week, and I almost forgot I had this October 3, 1959 ad that ran in the Lorain Journal. It's one of those full-page ads that spotlighted a lot of local businesses (in this case a lot of insurance companies). Give it a click so you can read it.
If you look closely, it also features our old pal Sparky the Fire Dog in a small cameo. Remember those free comic books we used to get in elementary school in the 1960s featuring the fire-fighting Dalmatian?
He even starred in his own Elf book. Check out the kid with the Jughead-style hat!
I guess it's only fitting to have Sparky make an appearance here on the blog, since fellow fire prevention mascot Smokey Bear appeared in a post back here.
