Ads #86: The Saturday Evening Post (Feb 14, 1953)
Here are some ads I have scanned from the Valentine's Day issue of The Saturday Evening Post 1953. Behold the wonder of decaf, the wholesome power of oats, the glory of grippie underwear, and the splendor of decorative fridge covers...
Man, this family sure is photogenic garglers. I especially love the shot of dad coming home with the dreaded disease...
Politically incorrect but still a nice illustration. I really appreciate how these old advertisements used real painted artwork. Remember Salvatore from Mad Men?

Man, where have you been all my life, oats? Who knew it was the answer to all of life's problems?
I'll bet this ad was illustrated by Frank Frazetta.
When I was a kid, I had a Lil Abner compilation and I must have read it a thousand times. The stories were so-so, but the artwork was breathtaking.

It's amazing - the picture on the television is more lifelike than the people watching it!
