|The picture shows this 1936 Post's Bran Flakes / Captain Frank's Air Hawks Newspaper Advertisement. Shown is the ad minus some of the white space. The top section has been cut off but all of the information is there of how to Join Captain Frank's Air Hawks. By sending a Post Bran Flakes cereal box top you can join. You will be told how to enter the free bike contest and get a free catalog of valueable prizes. Also by sending box tops in 1936 you could get the following (all pictured) :|
Official Captain Frank's Air Hawks Wings Badge (1 boxtop)
Captain Frank's Signed Photo (1 boxtop)
Stratosphere Hemet (13 boxtops)
Aviator's Knife & Compass (12 boxtops)
Official Boy Scouts Mess Kit (90 boxtops)
The order form is not filled in. The ad came in a 1936 newspaper from the Boston, Massachusetts area. On the back is a comic of "Cicero's Cat" by Bud Fisher. Someone had saved a lot of these comic strips that is why this ad is cropped at the top. Counting all white space the ad measures 15-1/2" x 7-1/2". Other than the comic strip being cropped it is in excellent condition.
