Welcome. Retain this Invitation… [Advertisement Card for Tropical Beer of Cuba].
Trade card for the Cuban brewery, Nueva Fabrica de Hielo, makers of Tropical Beer. Their trade card offered an invitation to the company’s tropical gardens with a promise of entertainment and “Free Beer!” guaranteeing a “permanent smile and everlasting pep you’ll only find in cristal [sic] beer”. We imagine this pitch card was geared towards American tourists and servicemen and is likely a rare survival.
