The cartoon of the original Elsie, a Jersey heifer, grew to become one of the most recognized advertising icons in the US and Canada and is still used, though Borden's ceased doing business in the 1990's. Elsie's work went way beyond advertising, and so this book, written on the 25th anniversary of her first World's Fair appearance, is a short social history of the World War Two years and beyond, War Bonds, Travel, Freedomland, a second World's Fair, family, and more. The author drew on several private collections and the Borden records to find the many photos in this book.  Note: This book has been sold.
