Friday’s ad is for Budweiser, from 1905. At least it’s not just yachting. The full tagline is “The Pleasure of Yachting, Golfing, Fishing, Camping Is Incomplete Without Budweiser.” But since this particular ad’s illustration is aboard a yacht, I have to wonder if there are companion ads on a golf course or campsite. Either way, the ad is certainly going for the outdoorsy demographic circa early 20th century.
Looks like the captain is pouring from a Bud bomber, or the 1905 equivalent. Not a quart. Wonder how long those were in production?
And Jay, looks like your right hand got shifted to the right a bit: “certain;y” and “early 29th century”!

Ha, good catch. I think it had more to do with falling asleep on the sofa, and then waking up in the middle of the night and writing this post half awake.
