Morton Salt Umbrella Girl by kevinbolk Morton Salt Umbrella Girl by kevinbolk
Next in my series of "Lovely Lady Mascot" art cards is Morton Salt Umbrella Girl. "When it rains it pours!"

The Morton Salt girl has been around since 1911 (99 years old. Wow!) and has evolved quite a bit since then. You can see her various incarnations here: [link]

Her last update was in the 1960s, which explains why she has a very "mod squad" look to her. I really hope they don't decide to redesign her for her 100th birthday...well, unless they asked me to do it. :D

Next up: The Land-O-Lakes Indian Maiden


The Umbrella Girl is a registered trademark of Morton Salt, Inc.

you know... it almost looks like she grew up since 1911. Each time they changed her look she grew a year or two. :3

Yeah I'd have to agree. If they updated her now she wouldn't have that same wholesome look. Your design would be so cute.

Aw, this one is cute. How did you come across these different "mascots?" I like them and would have probably never thought twice about the ones you chose.
