Norman Rockwell 1961 Advertising Portfolio of Daytona Beach

March 1, 2015 / by armstrong

I bought an interesting portfolio drawn by Norman Rockwell in 1961, which was commissioned as part of advertising for Daytona Beach. Even though the drawings are wholesome and completely unlike the kind of life depicted in “White Sugar, Brown Sugar,” the beginning of that novel is the same year, in the same place.

Some of the drawings are rather humorous — like the one that has an older many glancing at a pretty girl on the beach, while his wife is next to him, or the man who’s lying on the beach with a newspaper on his belly, showing a headline that says “Blizzard.”
