Happy Monday everyone. Here is part two of the vintage graphics from Modern Publicity annual for 1959 -60. Some wonderful movement in this selection of illustrations and I love this trendy lady out shopping with her wire wheeled basket.

A few light hearted cartoon characters to bring part two to a close.

I like the skipping toast girl and the farmer waiting for an egg for his breakfast (pity the ad’s for smoking though)

      Thanks Joy, that’s a great compliment as I’m forever aspiring to be more 1960 ish in my work : )

    What on earth is the man balancing on a tree trunk being cut through by a woodpecker advertising???? Great pics though, as always!!

      I think by the looks of it, it could be saying beware of dodgy insurance salesmen or something along those lines. What do you think ?

        That’s a much more sanitary idea than the one I was thinking of!!! I was thinking it might be for something like Immodium to stop upset tums!!!!
