Popular Mechanics ads from the old, old days (Jan, 1952)

That’s a rather interesting border the Kalamazoo Stove Company has. I wonder if their catalogs were popular in Germany?

I also think that “Speed! I Guess Yes!” is an awesome tagline for a car company and should be recycled today.

    Actually, before 1933 swastikas (though usually “square” or “laid down”) were very popular among Anglo Saxons as charms, keyrings or just ornamental motifs for almost everything from floor tiles and carpets to lamposts and bridge rails to foundry markings. There was a general interest weekly titled “The Swastika”, and it was also displayed on early British Boy Scout badges. To some extent, the only original or distinctive feature of the NSDAP swastika was it was “standing up” or turned 45 degrees (the clockwise and anti-clockwise urban legend is just that, a post-Hitler myth – both sorts of swastikas were regarded as equally lucky).
