Shipping to United States: $4.99

“Now Mary‘s teaching me to drive” is the theme of this 1942 WW2 Era original vintage advertisement by B.F. Goodrich Tires. The ad features a woman who is putting a “American Womens Voluntary Services,” sign on a car with the men who says she is driving for Uncle Sam. The ad is 10x14 and in b&w. It is in very good condition with a lower corner crease.

A BONUS is another vintage advertisement on the reverse side of the same page for Vaseline Hair Tonic featuring movie and television star Jean Heresholt, who played the title role in the Dr. Christian radio program. The ad features a picture of Hersholt with his hair in perfect place and information about the product. This ad is 5x14 and in b&w and a lower corner crease..

REMEMBER: these are NOT 2 separate items but the front and back of a SINGLE page. They are both being listed because of possible multiple interests or topics. They are both too nice for the buyer not to know about them.

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.
