Historic Victoria Advertisements – Automobile & Transportation – 1940-1949

As part of our series on Historic Victoria Advertisements, here is a Firestone Tire advertisement from 1946. Notice the “Tire Rationing Removed” in the upper right corner. Tires had been rationed during World War II (1939-1945).

None of the dealers mentioned at the bottom of the advertisement are still in business although some traces of their buildings remain.
