all aboard the gravy train

Fall 1951 ad for SVE’s Skyline slide projectors

Toronto. In the post WW2 years, photography grew in leaps and bounds: new amateurs, colour, slides, movies, etc. and all with easier, better ways to succeed as a photographer. The Chicago company, SVE, too wanted to profit from the enthusiasm for photography and took this ad out in the fall of 1951 to promote its new line of slide projectors called “Skyline“.

We owe my good friend and fellow PHSC member, George Dunbar, a big ‘thank you’ for sharing this slice of photographic history with us. The ad comes from the October, 1951 issue of Popular Photography to which I added a link in the previous post.
