The batteries that keep on going...

Saturday is leftover day, so I am showing you the remaining Eveready ads by Flessel that I scanned in this week but wasn't able to use on wednesday. These are from 1952 and 1953. The last one, I forgot to note the date, but it seems later to me.

These are awesome Ger, of course you know I'd love anything with a horror edge. The Shark River ad has a couple particularly frightening moments, odd for an ad to wanna scare it's customers with bloody knives and gnashing serrated teeth but I do approve, and only wish more advertisers had the desire (or balls) to push their product this way still!

Thanks for a tremendous series of scans, and a timely tribute to Creig Flessel. I'm switching to Eveready batteries from now on!

Steve,

Makes you sorry Flessel never did any proper horror stories, although some of his bible stories qualify...

Ghosts, sharks and snakes? Those are some vicious selling points for simple little battery ads.

The art is nice, though!
