Deconstructing Old Ads with Bill Sonnett
The King of Lines
Sometimes an ad does not need to say very much, it just wants us to remember the identity of the product. This week's ad falls into that category. It is 104 years old (Sporting Goods Dealer Magazine, December 1905) but even today it is cause to stop and enjoy a beautiful piece of art. Along the way one will probably not forget that Kingfisher makes a large variety of fishing lines and is the "King of all Lines."
