Lube Oil Adver

The advert below is from October 1948 - for Mobil in Malayalam

Copy reads roughly as follows

Come Here For Oil
Why - because Mobil Oil Lasts Longer
For New Cars and Old Cars etc.
Use Best Oil to bring down the fuel costs - so on and so forth
Mobiloil most sold lubricant in the field. The Best Oil for you
Leaders in the lubrication field for 82 Years

The advert was from Standard Vacuum Oil Company

In year 1948 itself Kerala had been identified as a consumer state it would appear
