Robert Day: Saga of the Bronx Mink

For the advertising agency Young & Rubicam, cartoonist Robert Day provided an elaborate illustration of a Bronx Street scene in 1940. The one disparate element, reportedly true according to the text of the ad, is the presence of a local mink trapper. The copy goes on to concoct a mock quote by Confucius relating the Bronx mink to creativity in advertising.
