This is a 1950 magazine advertisement promoting Puerto Rican Rums placed by the Puerto Rican Rum Institute, New York, NY.
--- Rum producing has long been an important part of Puerto Rico's economy since the 16th century. While sugar cane harvesting has virtually disappeared in Puerto Rico (except for a few isolated farms and agricultural experiments), distilleries around the island still produce large amounts of rum every year. Don Q is the top-selling rum brand on the island, where more than 70% of the rum consumed in the United States is produced.
