Miss Seattle Cooks With Gas!
January 26th, 2008 @ 2:05 am by Cliffe | Sorted Vintage Ads |
Now this ad is sure to make the modern day “Miss Seattle” groan. The 1952 Seattle Gas Company ad comes from a copy of the 1952 Argus
touting the world’ s mo
st modern laboratory-size range.
Laboratory-size?! They insisted that in ’53 Miss Seattle would be cooking with gas.
Speaking of ads (but hopefully the less groan inducing type), you may have noticed some
popping up on a handful of pages.
I’ve titled them “Vintage Listings” and hope they aren’t too invasive or distracting. They really just serve to bring some cash back in to cover the money going out for the items I procure for the blog — there will be no profit. Let me know if you have any feedback and feel free to call
me a sellout in the comments.
