Shipping to United States: $4.99

“We’ve got everything working but this one” is the theme of this 1944 WW2 era original vintage advertisement salute by the Association of American Railroads. The ad features a drawing of an old train engine and how railroads are contributing to the war effort. This ad is a full 8x11 size page.

A BONUS is another ad on the opposite side of the same page by the Wisconsin Alumni Research Foundation of Madison, Wisconsin. Featured in the ad is a vintage photo of a family sharing a meal and the importance of Vitamin D in health. There is also a offer to receive a booklet called, “Can We Eat Well under Point Rationing?” This ad is 5x11 and will be sent uncut on the original page it appeared.

The ads are in very good condition with nice detail.

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.

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 scarcer as the supply of vintage paper products continues to decrease. Please note this is an original, vintage product advertisement and NOT a reproduction.
