1944: Scottish Girl Advertises for Thrift

This Benson & Sorensen Dairy ad from 1944 uses a Scottish girl to advertise how thrifty drinking milk is.

When did Scottish people become known for their thriftiness, anyway, and is it really proper to wear a bow tie with a kilt? I didn’t think women wore kilts anyway, strictly speaking, though they do wear similar garm… yeah, I’m reading too much into this. Sorry.

And of course, the obligatory oblique war reference: "In these times."

(I’m not sure when the next post will be. It may wait until this afternoon. Sorry.)
