Happy Labor Day from the Breweries of Oshkosh

Every now and then, the breweries of Oshkosh would team up to publish an ad in collaboration. These typically occurred during times of stress. Here’s a good example. This ad was put out in advance of Labor Day 1946. World War II had been over for a year and Oshkosh was mired in the post-war recession that occurred as the country transitioned to a peacetime economy. In the face of the economic uncertainty that prevailed, Oshkosh’s three breweries teamed up to offer a message of encouragement... it can be done. Happy Labor Day!
Oshkosh Daily Northwestern; August 31, 1946
