Thursday’s ad is for Acme Beer, from 1951. This is from a series of billboard ads from the same year I stumbled upon, though I’m sure the originals in color are more spectacular. In this Acme ad for their Gold Label beer, they’re advertising it as a “new lighter, drier beer.” The cartoon faces are amazing, especially that wink.
Jay – is that the Bay Area Acme that died (I’m guessing 60’s) & got resurrected late 80’s/early 90’s? (I’m thinking yes because of Trademark regs)
