Offered here is a great 1936 western Union ad for sending of Easter telegrams. Wonderful graphics by Tom Lamb and Walter Beach Humphrey. On the inside Mr. and Mrs. Rabbit are working with help from industrious bunnies. All are dressed in the cutest clothes. When folded closed it measures 3 1/2" x 3", opened halfway 8 1/2" x 3" and entirely open 8 1/2" x 7". Excellent condition with no holes or tears.
Interesting piece of history. Often forget what an important means of communication telegrams were at one time. Excellent graphics by 2 recognized artists plus the most adorable bunny rabbits for Easter.
