Yeah, that's true - since at least the late '60s print ads have become much more realistic and natural looking.  I have ten or so issues of Life magazine from 1939-41; I think I got them in a thrift store.  Anyhow, every few pages there is a duo-tone ad, and they do look remarkable by comparison to the rest of the magazine - but better suited for cars or clothing with today's eyes.  One issue (Sept.1940) is pretty much a glowing endorsement of Wendell Wilkie with thinly-veiled criticism of FDR, some have women in what may have been considered "risque" swimsuits for the time, one has a photo of Joseph Goebbels and Hermann Göring on the cover.  

 

A friend had a prized copy of the Time magazine cover with Stalin as man of the year. But he was in black and white, not red and white.

eta: my parents refused to get Life magazine which was a pity because of the great photojournalism but I now understand why they took that stand

Yeah, they could be some sort of "sausage loaf" thing - it's hard to tell.  I couldn't find a larger scan of that ad and enlarging the image doesn't help much (click image to scrutinize further):

 

I see the fine print says "Frankfurts with Savory Tomatoes" so a stuffed tomato in case a stuffed pepper is too exciting I guess.

Swift was all about the funky accompaniments:

Edit: This one's peach halves with melon balls.

I think those are tomato or apple slices; I guess advertisers didn't realize until much later on that duo-tone printing for photos of foodstuffs rarely resulted in an appetizing look.  Yeah - "frankfurts"?  I thought that maybe in 1940 some people regionally called theme "frankfurts", but I found no evidence of that; even in Germany they were called "frankfurters".  That name must've just been Swift's marketing/branding idea.

That's how kielbasa or Italian sausage usually was sold by the local butchers when I was in NY.  It probably still would be if one goes to a butcher shop in most places I guess.  The Whole Foods I used to work in sold the ones they made locally that way too.

Dammit, I have a story to go along with this but stupid work, I was trying to multitask and wound up closing the window I was typing in. Maybe tonite I'll really embellish polish it instead of just slapping it out.
