Invitation to Disaster – 1962

Well, it's New Year's Eve – so readers of this blog know that means it's time for yet another macabre "Don't Drink & Drive" full page vintage ad featuring the Grim Reaper.

This one is from the pages of the December 29, 1962 Lorain Journal. This Grim Reaper is kind of a bare-bones (heh-heh) version. No robe or scythe for him.

As usual, there's an interesting roster of area businesses of yesteryear. There doesn't appear to be very many that are still around; Lucas Plumbing and Ed's Transmission managed to survive, however.

Anyway, have a safe and happy New Year's Eve!

Wonder if I saw that ad when I was 3 years old... pretty creepy! I had forgotten about Tudy's.
