Lunar Rocket

October 22, 1969 NM Northwestern

At the height of the space age and just months after we landed Apollo 11 on the moon, Schultz Brothers variety store offers this exciting four foot high rocket.  And it's just in time for lay-a-way before Christmas to excite the scientist and space explorer residing in every '60s kid, me included. 

Of course, you could always use that newfangled First Wisconsin Charge Card being heavily touted around that time.  Visa and Mastercard not accepted...which, at that time, were known as BankAmericard and Master Charge.
