Are you in
the know? menstrual pad
ad for girls, late 1940s-early
1950s? Kimberly-Clark Corp.
(Kotex tampons and menstrual
napkins, belts and underpants),
unknown magazine, U.S.A.
Tampons were made for the beach
(and riding bicycles, etc.) as you
can see in the bottom panel. I
wonder how many readers mumbled,
"Suuuuure, uh, huh!"
I wonder if Coca-Cola
had ties with Kotex; the second
panel mentions it, and that's
their bottle in the beach scene.
