I’m sure that, like a lot of people, I had seen this artwork before (most likely grabbed by everybody from Plan 59) but never the entire ad until it was posted by Xeni Jardin on Boing Boing. While not as clear as the artwork on Plan59, it’s great to see it all in its full context.

Sadly, the true originator of this scan, MewDeep, no longer has an account on Flickr. I can only guess but the evidence suggests to me that MewDeep was one of the many retro/vintage/Americana contributors that gave up in frustration when Yahoo began forcing unwanted changes on Flickr in May 2013.
