December 23, 2011: Christmas Afternoon in Northwestern Ohio

I added just ten more holiday ads today, from 1958 and 1959. There are two ads for bowl games in the Channel 11 gallery, a Friday, 12/26/58 ad for The Gator Bowl in which Mississippi defeated Florida by a score of 7-3, and a Thursday, 1/1/59 ad for The Orange Bowl where Oklahoma beat Syracuse 21-6 and The Cotton Bowl where Air Force and Texas Christan battled to a scoreless tie. There's one in the Channel 13 gallery, a Sunday, 12/20/59 ad for The Ohio Story "The First Christmas Tree" and one more ad for the 1959 Cotton Bowl in the CBS gallery, a Tuesday, 12/30/58 Texaco ad from the sports section. There's also one in the Radio Station Ads gallery, a Friday, 12/25/59 ad for Christmas Afternoon in Northwestern Ohio, sponsored by The National Bank of Toledo, on WSPD-AM 1370. The remaining five ads are all in the Other Vintage ads gallery. There's a Wednesday, 12/22/58 ad for Lasalle's, a Friday, 12/26/58 ad for People's Savings, wishing "Happy New Year-1959" and a Wednesday, 12/31/58 ad for Tiedtke's, also wishing "A Very Happy New Year!" There's also a Wednesday, 12/23/59 ad for Coca-Cola ("Don't disappoint Santa!") and a Thursday, 12/24/59 ad for Lamson's. All of the more than 370 Holiday Ads are in the Holiday Season Ads gallery and in the Vintage College Bowl Games Gallery. I'll be posting 1970s ads from the online archives of The Toledo Blade after Christmas...Happy Holidays to all!
