Bazooka Gum avdertisement.
The Bazooka Chewing Gum Company was established in Brooklyn after World War II. This cane with a curved handle was an advertising piece for the company, and the lettering on the side of the cane was done in the company's official colors. The Company also used comic strips as part of their advertising campaign.
