Fosta Grantly – 1955

I really like the design of this ad. Somehow very modern.

Fosta-Grantly – 1955

Funny that the main figure in the ad is not wearing sunglasses. I guess Jeff Chandler would take a paycheck but not don the specs.

Ray Ban Sunglasses 1950

Early aviators and proto – wayfarers. Crystal frames, green lenses. The crystal frames sunglasses look pretty close to what would become the iconic wayfarer, but from a couple years before the official introduction of the model. Maybe they weren’t as “groundbreaking” as the current literature would have you believe.
