These are just a small portion of the ads that we have for sale. None of these are reproductions, all are original. Most of these are large ads, larger than our scanner bed. Therefore the view shown on the page may not completely show the ad. They are placed in a plastic bag with a cardboard backboard for protection. Please e-mail us with your specific interests.

Full color 10" x 14" ad for their Frozen Cherry Pies. The ad has a picture of one of these pies that is at least life-size with a background of cherries on a white table. The headline says that "At last you can bake a better pie every time! Fresh-Frozen by Swanson! Fresh-Baked by You". The text describes the quality of the cherries they use and their tender pie-crust while telling you that the pie should be baked while still frozen, no defrosting necessary. This ad is larger than my scanner bed so the outer edges of the ad will not be visible in the scanned view.

Full color 10" x 13 1/2" ad that says that you can "Trust Swanson" as the picture that shows a family of people sitting at the table smiling. Mother has a Turkey Dinner in her hands and is holding it up for the camera to view. Turkey slices with gravy, mashed potatoes and peas, both with a slab of butter on top. You are asked "Who else gives you only choice slices of tender turkey" and if you read further into the ad you will answer Swanson. If you don't like Turkey there are eleven other choices of Swanson dinners.

Swanson 4

Full color 9 1/2" x 12 1/2" ad for their line of Frozen Dinners. Pictured in the ad is their Swanson TV Brand Loin of Pork Dinner with a fork holding up a tasty-looking slice of the meat. The headline has the incredible information that you can "Save 15 cents! And find out why you can Trust Swanson for the best in frozen dinners!" There is a coupon good for 15 cents off of any of the 12 dinners they were offering at that time.

Full color 10" x 13" ad for their Frozen Dinners or, as it says on the box, a TV Dinner. There is a picture of a Swanson TV Brand Turkey Dinner looking more carefully prepared and tasty than any I remember my Mother making for us to place on our fold-up tables that we would then jockey for prime position in front of our 13' Black and White set. The headline urges you to "Trust Swanson! Now more turkey than ever, all from meaty breasts and thighs" and another caption promises 20% more turkey than before. The text describes a delicious meal and mentions "12 Delicious TV Dinners to choose from" without giving a clue as to what they were.
