Message area lists very detailed claims for the oil's applicability Surely one of the earliest suggestions that aircraft could carry advertising banners, but the placement of the banner would have made more sense trailing behind the fast-moving aircraft, rather than hanging straight below it as if there were no wind. Another variant of this card replaces the aeroplane with a kite having such text. Either way, it's a rare image. $11.50 m(l)g(t)ac
