Merry Xmas, Everyone!

Its Bryan Ferry's Christmas Party, glam is at its peak, and even Roxy Music's publicist gets to cop a feel with '73 Playmate of the Year Marilyn Cole.

"And Mr. Grainger next door could find out where all those narrow gauge railways are."
"He can buy his own, he's not having mine."
"Whose, Dad?"
"Er, yours son, yours."

Uncle Sam We Don't Get Left - May 31 1889 Oregonian

is getting his cruisers ready for a little fun in Alaskan waters, if necessary. Our good old uncle means business when he gets his ire up, and its a cold day when he gets left. Something like ourselves.
Because we cater to the people's wants. We give them honest value every time- that's why we've been rushed the past week. This hot weather makes the light-weight suits go, especially when we sell good suits for $10 to $20.
Ready-made or Made to Order
We do both kinds of work and our suits to order are guaranteed to fit better than any of our competitors.
KOHN The Clothier and Hatter
Cor. 2nd & Morrison Sts.

-May 31, 1889.

[Kohn's was a prominent advertiser in the Oregonian back in the late 1880s. A lot of thier ads have these topical op-ed elements to them. Not sure what the "fun in Alaskan waters" is referring to, though. In May of 1889 the U.S. was involved in the second Samoan Civil War (, so maybe it's a reference to that?]
