Vintage Lucky Strike & Coca-Cola Magazine Ads: The Summer of 1961

The summer of 1961, a simpler time of carefree smoking and bubbly soda in glass bottles. You pop your last bite of egg salad sandwich and sneak a peek at the lifeguard sitting on his throne; he seems more interested in his Lucky Strike than the kids swimming too far out in the ocean. Your friends squeal with exaggerated surprise as the surf blasts them with an icy wave. You lay back on your striped towel, pull your sunglasses down over your eyes and release a pleasurable sigh. Tonight mom is making tuna noodle casserole and chocolate cake for dessert.
