Less is more

I could spend hours looking at old ads (and I sometimes have). Here is a Ford car ad from the Toronto 1921 city directory that was not afraid of blank space:

This ad was a header page for a section of ads by Ford dealers.

There really was a Ford, Ontario, though it was normally called Ford City – it was a Ford company town near Windsor that was an independent town until 1935.
