While Olsen’s is gone, this magnificent building lives on. It now houses a real estate company.
Quality Street is a long-time popular assortment of candies in the United Kingdom. Sadly, Mackintosh’s is yet another confectioner that has ended up in the hands of the evil Nestlé S.A. (and if you didn’t realize Nestlé was evil, poke around in your favorite search engine to learn how they are pumping millions of gallons of water out of my San Bernardino National Forest without a permit in the middle of the worst drought in California’s recorded history).
A couple of things I find interesting about this ad…
Notice how the headline is "these 3" yet Benito Mussolini is not mentioned in the text. I find this odd as it would be almost another year before he was removed from power.
I also find the illustration quite noteworthy. While certainly not a flattering caricature, this is one of the few wartime illustrations of Emperor Hirohito or any Japanese person during World War II that did not include any racial stereotypes.
