This advertisement for Firestone tires appeared as a two-page spread in The Saturday Evening Post on 27 October 1928. Created by Ernest Clegg, the map shows the global operations of Firestone from the rubber plantations in Africa, to the plantation buying offices in Southeast Asia, to the cotton fields and factories in the United States. The text at top explains how Firestone's world-wide enterprise and large-scale economies produces "the finest rubber at the lowest cost." Additional articles and advertisements on verso.
