Sunday’s ad is entitled Friends From the Country, and the illustration was done in 1954 by John Falter. It’s #99 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, some yokels from the boondocks are visiting their city friends. They brought flowers and home-grown vegetables, but the city-dwellers have beer. City 1, Country 0.
Weird perspective – loox like view from Upper East Side penthouse across the East River into lower Queens/upper Brooklyn; could be from upper West side looking across Hudson into Joisey – who knows?
