From The Saturday Evening Post
, June 14, 1941, a full-page ad for Hotpoint electric refrigerators and ranges. The top portion features a comic, Just Around The Corner: Ed And Alice Open Up The Summer Cottage
, which extols the virtues of having appliances in your summer cottage "just like in town." So much for getting away from it all & roughing it.
And no one ever shows up to help me move.
Having a title seems to signify a series -- be it a regular comic series or an ad campaign -- but it's unsigned. The style is so familiar... Capp? Marge? I honestly don't know; neither does Google. If you do, please share.
Here's the bottom portion of the ad, in case that helps.
