Shipping to United States: $4.99

“New undersea telephone cable link United States and Hawaii,” is the theme of this original at for Bell Telephone. Featured in the ad is a street scene from Waikiki Beach in Honolulu, Hawaii. See scan. Here you could “telephone Hawaii as clearly as you call across town.” This was an important means of communication when it was first used in 1957 until 1989 when it was replaced with more modern fiber optic cable. See the scan.

The ad is on a 7x10 page and in color. It is very good condition with nice color and detail.

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.
