Last Christmas, we shared a range of Christmas curio from ESB’s rural electrification magazine, REO News.
This year, we’ve put together a wonderful selection of Christmas-themed covers and artwork from internal staff magazine ESB Journal, which ran from 1958 to 1970, designed by various staff members in the Public Relations, Civil Works and Drawing Departments in ESB Head Office, as well as from other districts around the country.
Today’s post focuses on some of the best Christmas covers from the magazine. We’ll be releasing more Christmas-themed photographs, comics and artwork from the ESB Journal over the coming days, so stay tuned!
