Shipping to United States: $4.99

“24 hours a day, somewhere in America an army of Reliance workers were building the parachutes urgently needed by the U.S. Armed Forces. This is a 1942 original vintage advertisement for Reliance Manufacturing. They were makers of Big Yank Shirts and Trousers, Happy Home and Kay Whitney Dresses, Universal Pajamas, Penrod Shirts, Ensenada Suits and Slacks, Aywon Shirts and more. Shown are women working in a factory setting making the products. A booklet was offered called “The Interesting Story of Parachutes by Capt. Don Rae, parachute expert. A neat glimpse to the past.

The ad is on a 10x14 page and in color. It is in excellent condition with nice detail. PLEASE NOTE: any waves in the photo are the result of the scanner and do not appear on the actual product. Your ad will be sent protected by a plastic sleeve with backboard.

Vintage advertisements and articles are becoming more and more collectible for their nostalgia look and unique eye-appeal. They also are suitable for framing and are becoming more scarce as the supply of vintage paper products continues to decrease. Please note this is an original, vintage product advertisement and NOT a reproduction.
