Death Rides the Highway – July 4, 1964
This one is from 1964 and appeared in The Journal on July 3rd. In this ad, Grim is nattily dressed with a suit and fedora right out of an early season of Mad Men.
As usual in these vintage ads, most of the advertisers, except for Columbia Gas and – rather appropriately – Ridge Hill Memorial Park, have unfortunately gone on to the Great Beyond.
Here's hoping you have a safe and happy July 4th!
