Well, Christmas Eve is only a week away – so I’d better get going with the inevitable parade of Christmas-themed posts.
I guess it’s appropriate to kick off the holiday hoopla with a pair of 1960 ads anticipating Santa Claus’ arrival in Lorain.
The first ad is a full-page one from the November 17, 1960 Lorain Journal. But rather than Santa, it actually is promoting the upcoming Thanksgiving Day edition of the paper. The illustration depicts Santa straddling a jet resembling a missile.
(I posted a similar ad years ago and remarked that it reminded me of the ending of Dr. Strangelove.)
