Monday’s ad is entitled Trailer Camp Friendships, and the illustration was done in 1953 by Douglass Crockwell. It’s #79 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, a campground is filled with campers drinking beer. And even though they brought cans, they’re all poured into pilsner glasses, which seems to obviate the reason they brought cans in the first place. A newly arrived couple is waving from the next camp over. I hope they brought more beer, because that’s how trailer park friendships are forged.

Not an overnight KOA-style trailer camp. These people seem to be very well settled in with their tidy green lawns, flower beds and pristine white picket fences. Interesting assortment of beers on the tray.
Maybe an early low-cost site in FL for “snowbirders” on vacation in the winter? Who knows? For sure, hella WTF 63 yrs later!
