Ad for Listerine antiseptic mouthwash, with two women in somewhat striking layouts. Miss Lemon is bordered with her totem fruit, and speaks her personal history. Below her, a small icon seems either to be gargling with Listerine or else shouting "*Listerine Antiseptic cleans and freshens the mouth [etc.]". You don't see these every day. Published in the April 15, 1939 issue of LIBERTY. Source: Charles Perrien Restoration by: Charles Perrien
