    Here are four more advertisements from a 1944 FORTUNE MAGAZINE. All of these ads tie in their product with the war effort. Check out the “motorcycle of the future” in the Bundy Tubing ad. This company also claims to have made lines of tubing for nearly 10,000 different war product parts. The farmer is driving a “machine of war" in the ad for International Harvester. The Eaton Manufacturing CO is "devoting our entire facilities and resources to war work." In the Studebaker ad, the Connell brothers are off to war, leaving “the job of building Flying Fortress engines to their Dad.” You certainly don’t see any of these “rally around the war” advertisements in today’s magazines. I'm thinking about tearing these out of the magazine and framing. Should I?

      You gotta love wartime ads.This is just too cool.If the book is in rough condition maybe but it looks to be in excellent condition in which case I personally would not sacrifice it to frame. Thanks for sharing this.

      Thanks for your comments, Hedgewalker. I would say the magazine is in very good condition. Of course, it actually belongs to my husband so I'll have to check with him first. He doesn't know yet what I'm thinking about doing...... :)

      Without cutting up the magazine, you can scan the ads or better yet, make color photocopies that are nearly indistinguishable from the originals. You can even shrink or enlarge images to suit your frame and your taste. I'd just do a blowup of the motorcycle, it speaks to me!

      Thanks, PostRetro, that's a good idea. The magazine is large....a little bigger than legal size so it might be difficult to fit in my scanner. Maybe Kinkos would have a larger scanner. I'll check it out!

      Love the illustrations and I agree with PostRetro that scans would allow you to print out copies to frame. I would personally love to see a high resolution scan of the futuristic Motorcycle and the race car.

      Thanks for sharing.

      Thanks, fourpeepsake, for your comments and interest. I'll see what I can do about getting scans of the motorcycle and race car.
