Nuclear Nicety

A lovely birthday present from a good friend was a copy of a March 8th, 1954 Newsweek magazine. Obviously, the articles are fascinating, including one about Senator McCarthy, and the adverts are always good value in publications from this period. But this advert is simply stunning: using a nuclear cloud to advertise! The headline is a corker.


  1. Thanks Mike - I can use this in some of my physics lessons this week - hope they understand irony!!

  2. Super - for all the wrong reasons. Could have been a great one to analyse in class, but media is no longer 'relevant'. Glad you've had fun with the mag x

  3. Good to see the educational app. being picked up on! Thanks to you both for stopping by.
