American Optical ~ Sunglasses Adverts [1946-1948]

“Engineered for comfort! Designed for beauty!”

These ads for American Optical sunglasses date from 1946-48. Sunglasses have come a long way since then!

“Ever seen reflective glare? Of course you have! Look at any sunny, flat surface – snow, pavement, water – through ordinary sun glasses. Note how the rays of the sun reflect back into your eyes. Then look directly back at the same spot through AO Polaroid Sportglas. You will be amazed at the difference. All the blinding discomfort of reflected glare is eliminated… revealing unsuspected detail. Yet colours are shown in their true value. See for yourself!”



These three ads feature Tex McCrary and Jinx Falkenburg, stars of sports, radio and television.
