Advertisement for bananas from the United Fruit Company. This is an actual page cut out from a vintage 1958 issue of LIFE magazine that was too worn and damaged to be sold intact.

Cute color ad shows a cartoon nurse holding two bananas. Text describes the fruit's health benefits. On the other side is a color ad for Du Pont Paints (see Image 2).

Size: Page is approximately 13-7/8 x 10-1/4 inches.

Condition: Noticeable average wear: Small rips in margins; light creases; light age-tanning that is more pronounced at edges. Thin magazine paper with the expected minor show-through.

This ad would look wonderful framed and hanging in a retro-themed kitchen.
