In 1971, the Joseph Schlitz Brewing Co. sent out fancy-looking replicas of one of its 1906 advertising pieces to… oh, probably bars, package stores and, who knows, maybe even courthouses and Girl Scout troops. It was a different time. Anyways, here’s one of them.
I love this pairing.
The one on the left is a reproduction of Philip Goodwin’s “The Right of Way” by the Remington Arms Company from their “famous Remington Wildlife Art Collection” and was first issued in 1907.
The one on the right isn’t.
The date on this Chicago Coin pinball poster is unknown to me, but was probably made before 1977 when its assets were sold to Gary and Sam Stern, forming Stern Electronics and then Stern Pinball.
I can’t look at this poster without thinking of the classic Sesame Street’s pinball animation to help kids with numbers.
The International Arcade Museum has quite a list of the games Chicago Coin made.
Pinside has a shorter list, but with images!

“Here’s to women who play with fire and the perfume that they can smolder in.” — from a review of this scent by Barbara Herman at Yesterday’s Perfume.

You can pick up 90 ml. of this perfume on Etsy for the low, low price of $2,130! (used)
