    Wow! I won a box of Schrafft’s chocolate from my local radio station well over a half century ago. I hadn’t thought about that in decades!

    Did you ever notice that, until the 1960’s, they didn’t use photographs in advertisements, but very realistic drawings? (Did I mention that before?)

    • Any idea why that is? Mail order catalogs used to do the same thing.

        My guess is the ever-popular “cost.” Frederick’s of Hollywood’s catalog was like a comic book, and occasionally they’d sneak an actual celebrity in. I remember one had models that looked like Jill St. John, Brooke Shields, and Raquel Welch. I’m surprised they never got Betty and Veronica or Barbie in there…
