SPOOKS FOR SALE (Apr, 1951)
This is awesome, you can hire this guy to rig up your house and scare away unwanted house guests.
SPOOKS FOR SALE
ARE your mother-in-law’s visits too frequent and too long? Or has cousin George been troublesome? Then Robert Nelson of Columbus, Ohio, is the man to help you. He’ll sell you rattling skeletons, headless monsters, squirming ropes, all guaranteed to rid you of the unwelcome guests.
Nelson spreads his ghostly touch far and wide. He dispatches crystal balls to Swamis in Georgia, eerie voices to spiritualists in Seattle. Once he supplied a planter in the Bahamas with a spook that kept natives from stealing fruit. He doesn’t belittle old-fashioned ghosts, however. He says “It’s just that mine are more reliable.”
Harness to Hold Roasting Fowl (Sep, 1950)
For some reason this makes me feel dirty…
Harness to Hold Roasting Fowl
Fastened around a chicken or turkey by means of hooks that latch into rings, this roasting accessory holds the wings and legs close to the bodv of the fowl and allows the bird to be turned readily as it is cooked. The holder is made up of flexible sheet-aluminum links joined by rings.
Giant Coffee Urn In Service (Mar, 1938)
That looks pretty dangerous.
Giant Coffee Urn In Service
THE U. S. Coast Guard base at New London, Connecticut, has been provided with a coffee urn which is believed to be the largest ever constructed. It holds 60 gallons of water and the handle on its cover is just within reach of an average size girl. The big coffee maker is the center of attraction on cold nights for men returning from chilly excursions aboard patrol boats.
