Lucky you!

This ad for the Ottawa Citizen was part of a 1977 advertorial book titled The Key to Ottawa-Hull. There are some great ads in it, for long-demised businesses (Cabaret dining at the Sly Fox anyone?), as well as some nifty prose, such as this from Max Keeping: “You’ve probably heard the fable that Ottawa has at least six women for every man. The numbers have never been proven, but the sun season brings out the best of all people, and in Ottawa you find them drenching in the sun of the Sparks Street Mall. The heart of downtown, a five block pedestrian mall, where the vibes are of love.”CitizenAd
