By George, that company sure did buy a lot of ads in the Lorain Journal, even though it didn’t exactly sell something commonly purchased by newspaper readers. I ran its ad for Thanksgiving 1956 here, and I have one for Christmas that I’ll be posting next month.
The ad above appeared in the paper on Thanksgiving Day, November 28, 1957 – 60 years ago.
The clip art used in the ad is a little unusual in that it does not include any Native Americans – just Pilgrims blundering around with their blunderbusses. I’m sure that the ad would be the object of scorn if it was run in the paper these days. But it has a nice message, and I’m sure the Morning Journal wishes that more companies would run holiday ads today.
