Out of Context Ad: At Least They Aren’t Using Phony Lures

Filed under: Advertising, Recycled Newspaper — Brian Lutz @ 12:40 pm

Between last week’s roadtrip and this week’s dogsitting, I still haven’t quite managed to get everything back on track here yet, but there should actually be a Recycled Newspaper post coming sometime later today.  In the meantime, here’s a quick out-of-context ad snipped from 1959 (although I suspect it probably wouldn’t have taken too much guessing to pin down the approximate year on this one) that seems to suggest that  even in 1959 dollars, the cost of one of those big fancy chrome-laden land yachts that were all the rage back then could get a bit pricey after a while.  Of course, there’s got to be a cheaper way, and the rest of the ad this comes from would be more than happy to let you know what it is.  Feel free to post guesses (or wild speculation, whatever you prefer) in the comments.
