The Best Always Pleases Everyone

July 22, 1938, Appleton Post-Crescent
Even though the newspaper says the year is 1938, the ad copy here hearkens back to the turn of the century.  The stilted language, the complete sentences, the lack of graphics all remind me of the 1890s/1900s era when testimonial-style proclamations were all the rage.
