Like the rest of America, Philadelphia left the stability of the 1950s for a radically different era. It was the time of 'Mad Men' advertising, two Kennedys were assassinated, as was Martin Luther King. Protests erupted as blacks moved into white neighborhoods. The Cold War ramped up, troops were sent to Vietnam, hippies emerged with drugs and rock. And man landed on the moon. Through it all, advertising provided a bit of calmness amid the tumult. Comments?
