Beer In Ads #3229: Tuborg Wagon

Sunday’s ad is for Tuborg, from 1915. 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. I’ve been posting vintage European posters all year, and for the remainder of December will feature holiday-themed posters of all ages. “Tuborg is a Danish brewing company founded in 1873 on a harbour in Hellerup, an area North of Copenhagen, Denmark. Since 1970 it has been part of the Carlsberg Group.” I’m not sure who created this poster, but one commenter claimed “umbrellas with logos began to be used from the 1880s to protect beer carts from the sun and rain,” which is the reason for the umbrella on this wagon.
