An advertisement featuring Margie Stewart

image number:

P0022863

description:

See image P0022856 for additional biographical information on Margery Stewart.

The text running along the bottom of the image and continuing along the right side, reads, in full: "Kodachrome Reproduction In Four Color Offset By Western Printing & Lithographing Co., Racine Wis. * Poughkeepsie, N.Y. *** Photograph by Frank Lewis, Inc., Chicago"

Margie Stewart's quote reads, in full: "But, Mr. Spencer, are you sure I need this picture for my passport?"

The item seen here is a bifolium advertisement that appears to have been mailed to prospective clients of Western Printing. Had they been numbered, the image seen here would be pages 2 and 3. Page 1 reads, in full: "Margie the Model". Page 4 is titled "Passport To Success" and regards Margie going on to Hollywood, how Western printing cannot guarantee getting a customer's product into the movies, but that Western's Kodachrome reproduction process will give their customers a 'passport' to new sales opportunities.
