The full-page ad shown above with the clever theme, “Death Takes No Holiday on Our Highways” ran in the Lorain Journal on December 31, 1960 – 56 years ago today.
That’s one creepy illustration. Note how the artist included a small pool of (brrr) blood under the wreck.
As usual, the rest of the ad is a roll call of mostly long-gone area businesses. There are a few survivors – including Janasko Insurance Agency (with whom I insure my house and car) and National Waste Paper.
Like the ad says, don’t be a “Holiday Headline” in tomorrow’s Journal… be safe tonight!
