Retro Christmas Ads: Remember when....

Remember when you and the old lady would light up a smoke after opening the Christmas presents?

Schlitz.... it helps with the holidays

Remember when Santa gave out cigarettes to all the good little boys and girls?

Remember when you could play with your electric train and smoke a cigarette (in your house - that you pay the mortgage for) and your wife was happy about it?

Bob Hope knew what to give his friends for Christmas!

Nothing like a donut-shaped fruit cake for the company Christmas party!


And finally.... If you happen to see a ghost as hot as her hanging ornaments on your tree... don't run, just smile and say "Merry Christmas".
Special thanks to the Retro Press for the ads.

Merry Christmas from Mobtown!

Vintage Mutoscope cards

Joe brought in some of his collection of old Mutoscope cards.

Mutoscope cards 5.25" x 3.25" cards, usually of "pin-up" material, published during the 1940s by the International Mutoscope Reel Company and other firms. They are not individual pictures from mutoscope reels and have no connection whatsoever to the mutoscope motion-picture device. All carry the inscription "A Mutoscope card." They were sold from coin-operated vending machines in places such as amusement parks.

Joe found a bunch of these cards and we'll post a few of 'em every so often... so check back regularly.
