1940's Ad for A Canora Hardware store in Saskatchewan . Canada . Wow Bro (Walksoft) this is stunning lady to shop in a hardware store it is beautiful . Thank you !
Print by Jules Erbit
Julius "Jules" Erbit was an ethnic Magyar born Gyula von Zombori Erbits on April 5, 1889 in Budapest, Hungary. He moved to USA
he led a very long career and doing pin up girls came late in his life .
On July 28, 1942 he reported for draft registration with the Selective Service. This was required by law even though he was fifty-four years old. He was recorded to be 5'-10", 180 pounds, with blue eyes, brown hair, and a ruddy complexion.

After WWII he moved to Santa Barbara, California to follow the successful careers of other pin-up artists who were making it big in Hollywoood, such as Rolf Armstrong and Zoe Mozert, both of whom also created soft pastel portraits of beautiful women for advertising, calendars, and movie posters.

In 1946 he married his second wife, Alice de Soos, in Santa Barbara, CA. In 1957 they moved to Carmel, CA, and lived on Ocean Avenue and Carmelo Street.

His work was shown in several local exhibitions and Catholic venues, but his eyesight worsened until he was no longer able to work.

At the age of seventy-nine Julius Erbit suffered a heart attack at home in Carmel, CA. He was taken to the Community Hospital, where he died that night at 8pm, on December 10, 1968.

    Dear Manikin, I just found the following doll on the internet and thought that you might enjoy him. I am not in buyer mode, but I had share to share this gorgeous doll with you! (I was conducting a search for birdie's bisque porcelain vase. I think it's German, but I'm not sure. I'm very ignorant of porcelain.)

    Walksoftly is a loyal friend and a very kind one! Reckon you better keep him. : ) Do please take care. Spring is right around the corner! miKKo xo : )
