I went through all of my magazines & tear sheets this week, saw the sun rise 3 times! 1,000's of ads, images etc. This is one of the many ads I am in love with & I finally found a frame it would fit. The image is bright & beautiful with little to no color fade. Nice little write up about celebrating the 4th & listening to the patriotic music Columbia offered. Ive been wanting to post this image for some time now, better late then never.
The other image is from the same magazine & was the illustration to a story, another I'm in love with.
Thanks for looking.

    Ah, old ads are dear to my heart..these are beautiful! Not alot of people appreciate these as they should..books are going to be 'gone' from us some day.. with all the tablets and readers!

    Thanks official,oldhippe & bratjdd for the loves & comments. I agree with you hippee the printed word is almost a thing of the past. My youngest son will be using an Ipad next year instead of text books. He will be in 4th grade! This started last year for 4th-6th graders???????????????????? I know technology is great & all but really? I don't think a bunch of snot nosed no neck monsters need to be running around with $300(or whatever they cost) educational tools. I know my girlfriends kids who are in 5th & 6th use them to play angry birds. It truly blows my mind that somehow they can provide Ipads for some 250 + kids but they can't find any funds for Art classes. Touchy subject for me I guess, sorry for the rant.
