Lawson's Ad – May 25, 1962
The ad is attractively designed – uncluttered and with appealing typography. The clip art of the woman is a nice touch too. (Hey, me spouse just bought some specs that look like that – really!)
Chief Wahoo is in the ad too, to stress the fact that you could purchase Indians tickets at Lawson's and earn some free milk.
No mention of Big O Orange Juice. Perhaps it wasn't really marketed that way until later. No chipped chopped ham, either – our favorite lunch meat from Lawson's! But there's plenty of hearty and healthy summer cookout fare, like wieners, buns and popsicles.
The fine type lists some weird brands: Spunky Dog Food, Tops Nuts, Kenny Pork & Beans, Kenny Stuffed Olives, Kenny Kosher Dills (by George, that Kenny made everything), Ocoma Turkey Dinner, etc.
At least they have at least one fine Canadian product listed, although its spelling seems mangled: Dares Petite Buerre Cookies.
Anyway, here's hoping you have a great Memorial Day!
