|Scope & Content||
Log Cabin Syrup ad: "Oh Boy! Log Cabin Syrup! Um!!!" Full-page black-and-white magazine advertisement by Log Cabin Products Co., St. Paul, Minn. as published in The Ladies' Home Journal, November 1919, pg. 79. Leaf removed from magazine, 10-3/16" wide x 15-3/8" high (clipped lower edge.) See notes.
This ad is an example of how Log Cabin advertised in the years before the syrup was made in Hoboken. It established itself here in the late 1920s.
|Notes||The heavy-set man resembles Fatty [Roscoe Conkling] Arbuckle, a famous slapstick comedian and silent film star of the era. While it is apparently not the celebrity, it does appear to be an example of an advertiser trading on the fame of well-known personage without compensation.|
