Mail Pouch Tobacco Add

Back in January on a recumbent ride I posted a picture of a barn side Mail Pouch Tobacco add that I came across and thought a series of this old time graphic art would be a worthy addition to the blog.

This photograph I took a couple years ago in the town of Mt. Vernon, Ohio. It is the only time I've seen the logo on the side of a brick building.  I particularly like the irony in the header at the top: "Buckeye Candy & Tobacco Co."  Get some candy to rot the kiddies teeth while you enjoy a big juicy chaw of Mail pouch!

  1. I have contemplated doing a series on barns with these mail pouch ads. Here in MD, I see them all over the place.
