9 1/2" x 13 1/2 ad for their Tomato Paste. There is a large black and white picture of a smiling man with a picture in color in the upper right-hand corner that shows a can of their product and in the middle of the left side is a picture in color of the special tomatoes that Contadina uses to make their better-than-average product. The headline admits that "We're just small potatoes in the tomato business" but the text explains that if they were a larger company they would have to get tomatoes from all over the country, not just from California.

Black and white (except for the picture of the Contadina can) 10" x 13 1/2" ad that shows the Neapolitan family sitting and standing around a small table that seats one. They started the Contadina Tomato Paste Company and there are at least three generations of the people who make this product. The ad gives a short story about their starting in Italy then coming across to California and finding their tomatoes and switching over to them. The ad says that for every "little bitty can" of Contadina Tomato Paste there are eight tomatoes worth of product in each one.

Contadina 3

Full color 9 1/2" x 13" ad for their Tomato Puree. The ad has a picture of a can of Contadina Tomato Puree standing next to carrots, an onion, potatoes and some beef under the headline "Look what happens when an Irish lady learns a little bit of Italian". There is a smaller picture of a lady with red hair holding up a pot of tasty looking stew next to a recipe for Irish-Italian Stew. This ad is larger than my scanner bed so the outer edges of the ad will not be visible in the scanned view.
