Love Among the Fuller Brushes

A while back I found a delightfully cheesy early 1960s vintage Fuller Brush catalog featuring a romantic tale of a young stenographer’s budding romance with a ski instructor. The art director of the magazine must have been huffing some of the pine-scented Fuller Brush cleaning products, since many of the pictures in the catalog look like the inside of a haematoma. And the couple’s skin tones inexplicably go from pasty pale to three shades lighter than a minstrel show and back again.
Don’t take my word for it….for some unknown reason I scanned a mess of them which you can see in my Flickr set Love Among the Fuller Brushes.
