Lennox Aire-Flo Heating
Illustrated by Dave Mink
Originally uploaded by Paula Wirth

I found a set of 1950s brochures and correspondence from the Lennox Furnace Company, “The World’s Largest Manufacturers and Engineers of Warm Air Heating Systems.” Great illustrations, but the folks seem just a tad too excited about their new heating, don’t ya think?

Nowadays, I think that level of excitement is restricted to people who can actually afford to buy a home in the Bay area.

I will be uploading many more illustrated brochures related to housing in the near future.

This was one damn fine find, Paula – congratulations! Fwiw, I think it was probably produced in Chicago at Kling Studios (since we now know that Dave Mink did at least some of the illustrations). You can see a photo of Mink here and it even mentions that one of his accounts is Lennox Furnaces. How cool is that?
