Hey Mabel! Black Label ad – Nov. 1955

The ad above – from the pages of the Lorain Journal in November 1955 – caught my eye because of the great illustration of the classic Carling Black Label Beer bottle. Mabel's not bad either.

I've mentioned Black Label Beer a few times in this blog (here and here).

Hey, I still have some Black Label Beer in my "beer fridge" right now – I may have to open up a can or two on Thanksgiving! (The rest of my guests will have to choke down some Leinenkugel's Snowdrift Vanilla Porter.)

And before I forget, here's a commercial featuring the pretty Mabel shown in the above print ad.

According to this website, her name was Jeanne Goodspeed, and she enjoyed a 15-year run as Mabel in the commercials and print ads.
