Re: Ripley's Believe it or Not Vacumatic advertising and very ironic ad

On November 9th Len Provisor posted a selection of advertising blotters and possibly other give-away items from years past. Among them, near the bottom of Len's treasure trove, was an ad for Parker's Duofold that included the name and information for Plankenhorn's Stationary in Williamsport, PA, which happens to be where we live. Ron Zorn sent us a copy of this particular piece of history. The picture here was taken inside Plankenhorn's Stationary today, as we were leaving after dropping off a copy of the ad. Yes, Plankenhorn's is still in operation, at the same location as shown in the ad. Score one for brick and mortar.
