George Dickel
Black and white 7 1/2" x 10 1/2" ad for their Tennessee Sour Mash Whisky. The ad lets us know that there are only two choices from the realm of Tennessee Sour Mash Whisky and the ad shows a bottle of George Dickel next to a bottle of Jack Daniels Old No. 7 which is revealed as the other of the two choices. In a concession to the great taste of Jack Daniels the caption challenges "Show us a Jack Daniels drinker who doesn't like George Dickel and we'll show you a Jack Daniels drinker who hasn't tried George Dickel". The text explains that "George Dickel has everything the other has except one thing. Fame." and claims that since theirs is filtered twice, once before aging and once after, their is a gentler whisky.

Green River
Black and white 10" x 14" ad for Green River Blended Whiskey or, what was known as "The Whiskey Without Regrets". This ad has very little to talk about, the text says "partial to highballs" and there is a picture of a man with a smile on his face but his eyes were somewhat closed, indicating that it may have taken a few takes to get this ad picture taken. He is holding the glass very close to the camera so that his fingers and the glass are the biggest things in the picture. The only other words in this ad are the ones saying that you should "Make your next drink Green River".
