Yesterday it was decided this historic Coppertone Ad would not be put away forever. This ad one of my favorite things to see when being driven as a kid to my friends house in Miami Beach. It was decided that they would take it town to refurbish it, then put it back in its original location. Apparently Coppertone was developed by a phamacist in Miami many years ago. Right now I am awake solely because my sunburn is so bad! I need to come home more often.
