Object of the Week - Bar Drinks Tray - ‘Guinness for Strength’ 1940s

This design was produced by artist John Gilroy (1898-1985) who worked for the advertising agency S.H. Benson.  They were employed by Guinness in 1929 to come up with an advertising campaign that would have popular appeal and help to sell Guinness.

The scheme worked and slogans such as - ‘Guinness for Strength’, ‘Guinness is Good for You’ and ‘My Goodness My Guinness’ became household phrases.
