Comic Book Ads!
The first ad this time around is for this harmonica instruction course, with the "new sliding note finder" -- I wonder if they still make such a thing these days? I've kind of dipped my toe into the harmonica pool once or twice, and never had any success with it, but maybe this would work? This ad, as well as the preceding one, are both from Harvey's Alarming Tales #1, and this house ad shows just how many titles they were producing at one point that are completely against the idea most people have of Harvey being just publishers of Casper, Hot Stuff, Richie Rich, Little Dot, Little Lotta, and so forth! From the same issue comes this 3-way hurricane lantern ad... doesn't that seem to be rather an odd choice for an item to advertise in comics??? Another from the same issue, this had to have been a complete scam, right? I may have to Google this one up to see what's with it.
