SUBTLETY IN ADVERTISING, 1931


Today, a look at an unusual Tudor City advertisement from 1931.

At left, exhibit A ‒ page 9 of the New York Times on June 11, 1931. There appear to be two ads on the page (for City Radio and Brokaw Brothers clothing), but there's one more: that 'news photo' in the center is fact a stealth ad for Tudor City. Crafty copywriters!

Below, the ad, blown up.
