Ska in Jamaica Advertisements

Again I’m busy writing my biography on Byron Lee so don’t have a lot of time to blog this week, but still wanted to share some interesting advertisements I came across in a few copies of Life magazine in the late 1960s that mention ska. As you may well know, the Jamaica Tourist Board and the Ministry of Development and Welfare promoted ska in 1964 at the World’s Fair, but these are a few of their advertisements that demonstrate that mission beyond that initial push.
