First, a marvelous print ad for IT'S A WONDERFUL LIFE, meant to entice theater-owners into exhibiting the film, 1947. Yes, we love "Bedford Falls".
It's followed by a 1943 ad for the Disney/Donald Duck cartoon "Der Fuhrer's Face" also known as A Nightmare in Nutziland. FROM WIKIPEDIA: The cartoon, which features Donald Duck in a nightmare setting working at a factory in Nazi Germany, was made in an effort to sell war bonds. It's well known for the original song "Der Fuehrer's Face". You can read more about it here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Der_Fuehrer%27s_Face
And finally, does it get any better than this--the 1963 Caravelle Transmitter. So mid-century in design! BY REMCO--and a little fascinating story here.
Again, click on the photos and links.
