Magnavox Radio Phonograph / B. F. Goodrich Tires Ad

Magnavox Radio Phonograph / B. F. Goodrich Tires Ad
for item Ad4

This advertising duo comes from a March 1944 National Geographic Magazine.

The first side is an advertisement for Magnavox Radio Phonograph. It features a nice picture which was one of a series of incidents in the lives of immortal composers, painted for the Magnavox collection by Harry Anderson.

"Frankly your concerto is worthless, Peter Ilich, utterly worthless! It is trivial - unplayable!"

This was the devastating criticism of Nicholas Rubinstein, celebrated Russian pianist & colleague of Peter Ilich Tchaikovsky, when the composer played his Concerto No. 1, in B-flat Minor, for his friend's appraisal. Fortunately, Tchaikovsky did not destroy his concerto as his friend had advised. The Magnavox advertisement states you should hear the concerto on the Magnavox radio-phonograph.

The reverse side is an advertisement for B. F. Goodrich Tires - In War Or Peace. A clever soldier tells his buddy, "Don't tell the General . . . but I helped put his army on synthetic rubber tires!"

The page measures 6 7/8" x 10". It is in very good condition and ready for matting and framing - no rips or tears other than the binding edge where the page was removed from the binding staples. The page could also be laminated so both sides can be enjoyed.

Please include $2.00 for shipping in the U.S. Add an additional $1.65 if you want the item insured.
