Tuesday’s ad is for Carnegie Porter For Christmas, from maybe the 1940s. From the late 1800s until the 1970s, poster art really came into its own, and in Europe a lot of really cool posters, many of them for breweries, were produced. This poster is a little bit of a departure because I wanted to feature a Porter since my son Porter’s birthday is today. It was made for D. Carnegie & Co. located in Sweden. The ad was advertising the beer for Christmas and a popular local mixed drink called Mumma, which Martyn Cornell detailed in a post entitled Mumma, Mixed a Beer Today…. I’m not sure who the artist was that created the ad, but there is a symbol I don’t recognize in the bottom right hand corner, which probably gives a clue.
