The way we lived in 1949 Part 3


An occasional series showing adverts in the year I was born.
It was ten years since the last world war began and only 4 years since it ended. And reflecting on that decade Picture Post issued a special edition in which this advert appeared.
Mr Therm was an advertising figure created by the old Gas Board and appeared in newspapers, magazines and even in the Eagle comic.
Picture; from the collection of Andrew Simpson
