As we know, Elsie The Cow has been one of our country’s most recognizable advertising icons for many decades. Thus, our beloved mascot has had the privilege of playing an important role in the childhood of many Americans, which led to this week’s #ThrowbackThursday submission.
Linda’s husband, Dennis, was a member of the Borden employee family for over a decade – beginning as a fill-in driver for wholesale and retail home deliveries and later becoming a permanent wholesales salesman delivering to restaurants, grocers, and convenience stores.
Linda & Dennis’ oldest son was born in 1966, which is when they obtained the Elsie the Cow and Borden truck memorabilia portrayed in the photograph.
Thanks so much for the submission, Linda, and our most sincere thanks to your husband, Dennis, for his years of commitment to Borden Dairy!
