This has to be one of the coolest advertisements out of the 1920's I've ever seen, I picked this up from an 80 year old guy. Notice the 3 digit phone number, not only are they advertising for a modern ambulance but if you die on the way to the hospital, they offer funeral services too. Lol

    LOL! Sounds like it could have been the forerunner to today's medical insurance company consolidations

    Chevy That is one cool ad :-) of coarse you would die before the machine got to you so they just load you up to go their funeral home . Love it I have never seen anything like it and being a para medic and RN I find it quite amusing :-)

    Thanks Manikan and Harborguy, for love and comments, yeah if they are having a slow month in the funeral home, the ambulance make take the scenic route to the hospital, then your really screwed!
