It was posted before, but a great ad that all of us enjoy seeing.

I've felt that way ("Everyone admires a PT man!") since learning about them as a little kid in the early '60's...

Still do.

I love this Ad,
This gave me the idea of adding some of these to my scrap book.
My scrap book is going to be a surprise gift to my husband,about his father, originally set for Fathers Day.
For those of you who have helped me with this project. I need to tell you I have had one problem after the other with the photo book company and I have come to accept the fact that the book will NOT be done for Fathers Day.
That was a bitter pill but I have come to accept it and take advantage of the time I now have to research more and now I am thinking these ad's would be great.
It would give some fun and interest to the pages of my book that are just document type stuff. I wanted this book to be fun, not to read like a text book.

I was looking on ebay but it can get kind of expensive. I was wondering if these were posted in the past. Maybe someone would be willing to send me a digital copy?
anything at 300 dpi or higher I could print for my scrap book of my father in laws Pt Service.
Thanks
Julie

Julie, I have well over 250 of these original ads. The problem is most won't fit into the scanner, and I don't have time to dig them out and scan them. If I can I will try and scan some of the smaller ones, but no promises.

Frank.

Whenever I see something that I want to scan but i'stoo big for the scanner, I simply takean image of it with my digital camera. Great if I'm out and see a poster about an event I want to attend.

I wanted to thank all of you for the information about these ad's.
Gary, the link to earlier conversations about these Ad's was very helpful. I will check out one of those books on the Ad's.
I just Love These Ad's,

Frank, thanks for the comic book cover art work and all the help you have given me in the past weeks for my scrap book.

You guy's are the best!

Julie
