A fun find: Original artwork for a 1950's era Ralph M. Parsons Company ad:

Case in Point: "auto-truck-phobia'
Symptoms:
His nerves are frayed and frazzled,
His steering wheel's worn thin;
Drives miles and miles to work and back,
No wonder he's all in.
RX: The Ralph M. Parsons Company

The artist's board measures approximately 18" x 11". The piece is in good condition with some light tanning and a bit of light soiling on the board.

From the estate of illustrator Wesley W. Amack. Although unsigned, I believe this ad (along with several hand-painted posters and other drawings that will be available in my shop) was created by Mr. Amack, and that he worked for the Ralph M. Parsons Company art department.

About the Ralph M. Parsons Company (from Wikipedia):

Parsons Corporation (Parsons) is an engineering, construction, and technical and management services firm headquartered in Pasadena, California. Founded in 1944 by engineer Ralph M. Parsons, Parsons Corporation is currently one of the largest such companies in the United States...Parsons designs, builds, and manages projects around the world, in diverse markets ranging from bridges to wastewater treatment facilities to homeland security.
