Beer In Ads #3112: Carnegie Porter For Christmas

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.
