1934: Faces Are Not Easier To Remember

"Faces are not easier to remember than names!" states this rather cryptic advertisement of 1934 for…

What, exactly?

Well, them:

Beatty & Sall’s had a series of ads in the Globe in 1934, with the top part being a cartoon with a trivia statement, followed by the explanation of the previous newspaper’s cartoon and trivia statement.

The statement "You can get sunstroke when not in the sun!" was the trivia statement from the prior ad, in this case.

They’re fun, eye-catching little advertisements.
