Owens Corning Fiberglas: Alice in Insulationland

Advert from 1958 magazine. The page is too big for my scanner, so I had to make do with a photo- hope you can still read it all ok.

I’ve looked up Owens Corning, and they still exist- in fact they’re ‘the world’s largest manufacturer of fiberglass and related products’ according to wikipedia. I’m sure Alice helped.

It’s not the only time they used her, either:

“Alice in the Wonderland of glass” photographs, 1937.  Owens Corning Inc. Records, MSS-222.
The year before Owens-Corning Fiberglas was spun off as a separate company, Owens-Illinois developed a marketing campaign built around the wonder of glass.  It featured the character “Alice,” who visited the various manufacturing facilities to find out more about this “wonder” product.  Here, “Alice” watches workers make Fiberglas insulation.

I love going through the 'suggested friends' bit on Facebook- especially when it links two people you know completely independently from each other in an 'x degrees of separation' sort of a way.
