From the Connaught Tribune February 18th 1956:

Anybody else notice the correlation between the demise of Bovril and the demise of the profession of lightkeeper?
Anyone else notice there's no lighthouse like that on the west coast of Ireland? Must be the west coast of somewhere else...

  1. The "west coast lighthouse" mentioned is probably (inspired by?) the Smalls lighthouse off the coast of Wales. It did have red and white stripes for a long time and it's position as a rock lighthouse to the west is probably what the copywriter was thinking of. Love the illustration.
