Shipping to United States: $4.99

“4 out of 5 face the risk to work to work or have no job” is the theme of this 1943 WW2 era original vintage advertisement salute by Alemite Lubricants. It features information about the need to get cars in good working condition for transportation to work with buses and streetcars only able to take 1 out of every 5 workers to their jobs. This leaves private transportation or walking as the primary way to get to work during WW2. Alemite Lubricants, Motor Oil and Lubricating Equipment would help keep those cars running.

The ad is 10x14 and in good to good condition with nice detail and presentation and some edge wear and aging. Please see the scans.

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.
