SUPER “88” HOLIDAY SEDAN
The car with the power personality! Powerfully safe with the Rocket T-350 Engine…powerfully smooth with the new Jetaway Hydra-Matic Drive. It’s exclusively Oldsmobile for 1956.
A man-made reproduction of one of Nature’s scenic wonders – realistically illuminated. Acclaimed the premier of all post-war spectacular advertising ideas.
Mammoth in conception, heroic in size and dramatic in effect, it achieves an illusion of vast depth and distance by a play of unseen colored lights on a three-dimensional sculpturing. A million travelers see it daily on Broadway and Forty-Third Street, Times Square, New York.
Beautiful new 1960 Cushman scooters are the modern way to go. Sleekly designed and precision engineered, they offer the ultimate in dynamic performance and low cost of operation. The smart Road King is shown at left in the picture, the dynamic Super Eagle at right.

Here’s an interesting postcard that advertises the theatrical production of “Hawthorne of the U.S.A.” Starring Douglas Fairbanks (who, interestingly, didn’t repeat the role in the 1919 film version), the play appears to have had a lengthy run at Brooklyn’s Montauk Theatre as well as at many other venues.
Published by Detroit Photographic Co., this postcard shows a nice early Hudson River scene, but what really intrigues me is the advertising on the back. Promoting Ammidon & Company (manufacturers of tin roofing caps), the lengthy text (so lengthy as to preclude the ability to mail the card) consists of a curious sermon on neglecting ones wife. Huh?
