General Motors Diesel Power / Bell & Howell Ad
for item Ad2
This advertising duo comes from a March 1944 National Geographic Magazine.
The first side is an advertisement for General Motors Diesel Power. There is a great picture of an 1865 Express Train. The ad talks about how the GM Diesel Motor is helping the war effort and how it will be be an economical power ready to do the hard jobs of peace.
The reverse side is an advertisement for Bell & Howell. the ad states, "It"s a Weapon - Soldier." The ad goes on to explain how the shovel can be used to save one"s life long after it has been used to dig foxholes in the side of a nameless hill in Italy. The soldier will learn these techniques by watching a movie on the Bell & Howell Filmosound Projector. A real look at how the war played a part in advertising in the 1940's.
