- Authentic, Vintage Magazine Ad professionally matted and framed in an Historic Route 66 Town.
Some of the text in this Vintage Ad:
This looks like a war picture but it’s right here in the U.S.A. It shows a part of a telephone cable-laying job. We’re planning to install 2,100,000 miles of Long Distance circuits within a year.
Lots of action on the Long Distance front
Long Distance calls are still at a high level
and there's still pressure on the wires. But
we're on the way to giving you more and
better service than you've ever had before.
Telephone factories are turning out equipment
for peace with the same speed that
they turned it out for war. All over the
land, telephone men are laying cable,
installing Switchboards and working on
new telephone buildings for the nation's
It'§ a tremendous job and it win take some
time and a lot of money. But we're going
at it, eagerly and efficiently, with every
resource at our command.

A great Vintage Ad!
You pick your frame color, and you pick your mat color. We will mat and frame your Vintage Ad per your request and send it to you promptly. All you have to do is remove it from the box and hang it on the wall in your home, office, garage, man cave, or showroom!
We mat and frame original, vintage magazine ads...they are in good condition, but may not be perfect as they are many decades old. Frame outside dimensions are 15" x 12", and matted ad is approximately 9-5/8" x 6-5/8" (could be slightly different, depending on ad).
Frames and vintage ads are actual as shown, and mat is computer generated for online viewing. Actual mat is custom cut for each individual ad and mat color will be similar to the colors shown on the website. “Travel Route 3 Scan” watermark is placed on the ad for online viewing only, and is not part of the final product. Back side of Vintage Ad is glued to backing paper so that it continues to display flat over time. Here is what you will receive:
- New frame
- New mat
- New glass
- Vintage Ad
