Narrated by San Antonio television personality Thomas Reynolds, these advertisements for Fair Maid Bread liken the bread and cakes to other "good things in life," like healthy boys and girls, watching animals at the zoo, visiting the neighborhood amusement park, and outdoor sports. Courteous attendants and savings on fuel and oil are promoted in the advertisements for Gas-A-Teria stations in San Antonio and Austin.
