Here's a few I have. I doubt the Rock Lake Hotel still exists, but I would have loved to tour it.

Was on the market in 2021-2022 with the following description:


Quote:
An amazing opportunity to own a piece of history in Legendary Lake Mills. A perfect location a block from Bartels Beach at Rock Lake, a few blocks to commons park, shopping restaurants downtown and minutes to I-94. - This remarkable building was constructed as The Rock Lake Hotel in 1900 and then converted to The Lakeside Apartments in 1922. - The entire main level has been remodeled into a extraordinary 2 Bedroom unit, 2.5 Bath unit with a gourmet kitchen, formal dining room, living room with fireplace and 2 dens. - The 4 upstairs units were rented, but vacated prior to remodeling of the main level. - Zoning may allow conversion to condos (see plans in docs) or use as an extravagant single family home!! Parking pad for future 6 car garage, a carriage house and another storage building...

Fencing, not the sport but the boundary indicator, how does one best advertise ones fence products when that is what your company makes. Advertising cover maybe?



Oh how boring. Perhaps add more illustrations?









Illustrations are just so.... ...flat. Lets add embossing.



Advertising covers can be so limiting with their only one or several pictures, even with embossing.

If one picture equals a thousand words, then one real item must equal a thousand pictures, right?

Now that is advertising.

Picked up a nice classic gun cover at Wiscopex. John Pritzlaff founded his hardware store in 1866 which became the largest hardware company in Milwaukee eventually became one of the largest wholesale hardware companies and iron supply houses in the Midwest. It was known for selling hardware, sewing machines, and toys through mail order catalogs to wholesale accounts throughout the United States.

Not heavy on the advertising, but commercial from Studebaker to a newspaper in Nova Scotia. Wonder what was in there.

My Dad bought Studebakers until they stopped making them. Then he switched to Rambler.
