Gaby
Three color 5 1/4" x 13 1/2" ad for the ad that begins with the words "Tan with Gaby". There is a lady in a two piece bathing suit and a pair of the most unusual sun glasses. I am not sure if that is the reason that she has such a weird look on her face or not. It then says this is the "Biggest Selling Suntan Lotion - with readers of Modern Magazines, as shown by latest survey. Proving again, what millions of satisfied users already know - "Gaby is the best under the sun". At the bottom of the ad there is another item that looks like an armed services token. This says "With Our Armed Forces under blazing tropical skies...at bathing beaches...in Victory Garadens - Gaby is performing miracles. Pleasant, and easy to use, a sure preventative against painful sunburn - Gaby promotes a beautiful tan!".
