retroCRUSH I found this 1943 ad for Cannon Towels and think it's fantastic! I wonder if there were more in the series of "True Towel Tales".

Plus, you gotta figure a towel good enough to dry off a bunch of stinky soldiers after they were bathing with crocodiles has gotta be good. It's also interesting that crocodiles are referred to as "crocks" instead of "crocs".
