Pitch perfect: miscellaneous

Our long march through the various categories of commercial slogans collected in Williams Sunners’ 1949 tome, American Slogans, is nearly at an end. We have remaining only a few broader (though no less compelling) categories, such as this week’s collection, categorized by Mr. Sunners as “Miscellaneous.”

Many of these slogans raise questions, given that we don’t necessarily know what product they were meant to tout (Anyone know, for example, what the Briggs Manufacturing Company made? We sure don’t, so we have no idea how much a selling point it was that their products were “acid-resisting”). But that’s half the fun, we think—imagining, relying on the slogan alone, which product was being advertised back in the day.

  1. I found this when searching for “Call Carl, Washington’s Little Detroit.”
    This was a chain of gas stations in DC, and I was looking for any picture of one for a DC nostalgia page on Facebook.
    I think they did more complex repairs than other gas station, but really only remember seeing them.
