Rocket to a new high with WARD!
Originally uploaded by Paula Wirth

No stranger to sexually suggestive advertisements, I was nevertheless almost shocked by the audacity of this one. No subtlety lost on this particular ad campaign, I dare say.

Advertisement for The Ward Products Corp. from Radio & Television News, September 1953.

Check her out (full-size) in all her glory!

For more contemporary, but equally scintillating Ward-related illustration, check out Ward-O-Matic (no relation to Ward Products Corp.).

Ah yes…my old company I started when I was just starting out in the biz. Nothing like using good ol’ fashioned sexism and cutie-pie girls positioned on phallic-like rockets to sell TV antennas….ahh, how I miss the good ‘ol days!

Thanks for posting this, Paula. This is great!
