Friday’s ad is for “Rainier Beer,” from 1943. This ad was made for the Seattle Brewing & Malting Co., who made Rainier Beer, and was later known as the Rainier Brewing Company of Seattle, Washington. This is another ad during World War II and includes patriotic slogans and pleas for supporting the war effort. But the main focus is showing what the post-war future might look like, with gleaming highways and high-rises right next to the airport (check out the plane in the upper left) and a total of nine trees. That future doesn’t loo too great to me. But at least there will be beer.
