Tea Total

Wednesday Advertising Day.

For some reason I have been going back to old ad series I have been posting about from the start lately. In some cases, because I had a few new color cans, but in this case it's because I found that the series started a whole year earlier than I thought. The Lipton Tea ads are a prime sample of what Johnstone and Cushing were good ad, giving a friendly face to the product with 'true to life' stories and characters. In this case they were drawn by Dik Browne (with some possible help by Gill Fox - if it wasn't all Fox imitation Browne), so what's not to like.

I have repeated all the old one I have, with the new ones up front and some extra news finds in early 1951 and late 1952. The series seems to have been done once a month, so I am still not cmplete, but I'm getting there.
