The one photograph I had of the bench as it was displayed at Irwin's Confectionery in Columbus, Ohio.It looks a bit more cluttered than the simple approach shown in the dealer sales aid pamphlet which I attached at the bottom of the post. While the pamphlet featured eight, I only scanned three of them.
Last week I blogged about the Red Barrel Magazine and how I use them for research. This is a good example. I have attached the April 1928 Red Barrel. This issue had a special article on how the bench window display, fence festoon and bathing girl poster were all to be used for different location between May and August 1928. Download RB1928-Apr
While we have the bench, I sure would love to have some of the crepe paper shown in these displays!
