Saturday’s ad is entitled Getting The Boat Ready, and the illustration was done in 1950 by Douglass Crockwell. It’s #42 in a series entitled “Home Life in America,” also known as the Beer Belongs series of ads that the United States Brewers Foundation ran from 1945 to 1956. In this ad, it seems like more of a canoe than a “boat” that he’s getting ready. But I love how everybody’s sitting around drinking beer and watching that one guy do all the work. I guess it’s his boat.
