Pullman / Meissner Manufacturing Company Advertisements
for item Ad9
The front advertisement is for Pullman Train. It features a man that has to make a last minute business trip. He knows he will not get a bed on the train because the Pullman fleet is booked full moving American troops to support the war effort.
Luckily, someone cancels at the last minute and the man is thanking them for the night"s sleep he will get. The advertisement is stressing the importance of notifying the company if plans change. The ad ends with "Let"s all back the attack with war bond!"
The reverse side is Meissner Manufacturing - makers of the electronic radio-phonograph - the only one in existence according to the advertisement. It shows symphony conductor, Howard Barlow, listening to a record of his orchestra and comments that it sounded as if the music was just a baton"s length from his own hand.
Meissner perfected this electronic wonder just before the war started. At that time, it began making electronics for the war effort. The advertisement promises this exciting technology will be there for all to enjoy in the Post-War days to come.
The page is from a National Geographic dated March 1944 and 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.
