Historical Perspective - 1956 G tug repowering ad - Paul Strubeck
Its a 1956 ad for Cleveland Diesel Division of General Motors.  The ad is describing the "new" Cleveland 498 Diesel Engine, which used both a Turbo and a Supercharger.  Not many of these engines were made, they were not a major success as by the time these came around EMD was making the same horsepower with less.
