More Vintage Ads from the Fifties

August 20, 2015

 

Sometimes the ads are as interesting as the editorial.

We're still in 1951, here, still in that same issue of Gourmet.  I don't think I need to explain why each of these ads delights me.  Although it's possible you'll miss that little line in the Blue Nun ad about vintage 1937 Auslese. Blue Nun, incidentally, was the largest international wine brand in the fifties.

    If I had “gourmet friends”, canned tamales would no doubt be the perfect gift. “You’ve never tasted tamales like these” — indeed! — I certainly hope not….
    I love old magazines, thanks so much for these wonderful bits from “Gourmet”.
