Ad Strips: Electrified History



Here’s a gem from the good folks at General Electric. This series of cartoon ads was produced in 1924 by the great C.D. Russell. Russell was at this time well on his way to becoming a favorite in the humor magazine Judge, and almost a decade away from creating what would become his life’s work, Pete the Tramp.

Thanks to Cole Johnson for sending in these superb samples from the series!
