Tuesday’s election ad is for Budweiser, from 1965. In this ad, with the headline “When Gentlemen Agree …,” the elephant and the donkey appear happy and sharing a beer. This is when Johnson was president and shortly before we elected Nixon. I sure hope both sides of this year’s election can share a beer and appear so happy, and soon.

I have this same ad, I dated it 1956 with a pencil after I removed it from the magazine it was published in, most likely LIFE. It’s a full spread page, staples removed it measures 21 inches wide. Very nice.
