Long Sam's new dress - 1956

One of the great things about having a blog is all the people with similar interests who gets in touch.
Last week I got a mail from Pat Thompson. Back in 1956 she and her sister Peggy sent Bob Lubbers a design for a new dress for Long Sam.
And what a reply they got!
An original drawing of Long Sam in the dress they designed!

Pat still has both the original mailing envelope and the artwork and has allowed me to post them here. Enjoy!

As a bonus to this post here's a Long Sam promotion piece made for the Bridgeport Herald. Might also be from 1956. (Grabbed this file on the net some time ago. Don't know where. Hope the owner don't mind.)

For more Bob Lubbers artwork use the label below.

I used to own that great Long Sam promo original art for several years. Alas, I sold it via Heritage a few years ago. —Collin Kellogg
