Ad of the Week: Seagram’s Crown

A nice representation of post-Prohibition advertising, and perhaps a potshot at American distilleries, who were still ramping up production after repeal in 1933. Remember, whiskey is aged, so even by 1937, American brands wouldn’t have produced anything near the 50 million gallons of Seagram’s, which of course was a Canadian firm.
