1940s / 1948 Shinola Shoe Polish
This is an ad from the March 1948 Seventeen magazine. I always thought shinola was a slang word. It's a shoe polish! The trademark name is created by adding ola to the word shine. Various commercial products used this trick of adding ola to their product's name to create a trademark such as Crayola or Victrola. Who knew that Shinola was also used as slangola? LOL BTW, when you copy a picture here, it copies into the original size. All of my media pictures are on the large size, so, if you want to read or see more details feel free to copy it in order to see it at a larger size.
