This past Sunday, many of you celebrated Easter. At Scott’s Liquid Gold, we also celebrated our 59th anniversary. Many things have changed in the last 59 years.
Let’s take a brief look at what life was like in 1951. The United states was involved in the Korean War. McCall’s Magazine for women published their first issue. The Red Skelton Show aired and the first tests of color television were commercials broadcast from the Empire State Building. Ford was developing a new car that would later be known as the Thunderbird. Gas to fill the tank cost 19 cents a gallon. The average family income was $3,700 and the average cost of a new home was $9,000. Unemployment was a a mere 3.3%.
Yes, much has changed since 1951 but not Scott’s Liquid Gold. We are still one of America’s best known household products. Tried and true, we’ll be around to care for your home furnishings long after many others have come and gone.
