Shipping to United States: $4.99

“This is America, help preserve her” is the theme of this 1943 WW2 era original vintage advertisement salute by the Kendall Oil Company of Bradford, PA. The ad features a wonderful photo of a young boy and girl enjoying a milkshake at an old soda fountain. Kendall was advertised as the 2,000 mile oil. Please take a look!

A BONUS is another ad on the opposite side of the same page by the American Meat Institute of Chicago, IL. Shown is a solider getting a ration meal and the importance of meat to the war effort.

The ads are in good to very good condition. There is a small tear at the bottom edge with small piece of clear tape. Please see the scans.

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.
