Seattle City Light billboard, 1968

“Modern Seattle lives better electrically!”

I mean c’mon, that housewife illustration is right out of a 1950s ad from Life magazine is it not? I wonder how long that billboard had been standing when it was shot. I’m sure it’s too much to hope that it’s been preserved.
