24 Success Articles From American Preservation Magazines
1 24 Success Articles From American Preservation Magazines
U.S.A. American Preservation Unknown date Unknown edition Disbound Articles Very Good Condition 
I found these disbound articles in a box of Architectual Review Magazines which I bought at auction. I almost tossed them out until I realized how worthy they are. Each of the 24 focuses on a particular area within a state located anywhere in the country. They all derived from American Preservation magazine, so the color photographs are stunning. Each article is pretty long with many images. I wish I had more room to show them. Areas are these: New Orleans Lower Garden District; Providence, Rhode Island; Salem Massachusetts; Eutaw, Alabama's Greek Revival Architecture; Galveston, Texas; Mizner's Eden Palm Beach's Flamboyant Architecture; Brownsville, Texas; Waterford, Virginia; Helena, Montana; Columbus, Georgia; Madison, Indiana; Eureka Springs, Arkansas; Key West, Florida; Jacksonville, Oregon; Mt. Auburn in Cincinnati, Ohio; Manchester area of Pittsburgh; Savannah, Georgia; Powelton Village, Philadelphia; Saratoga Springs, New York; Crested Butte in the Rocky Mts.; Detroit's Woodward East; Oakland cemetery; Galena, Illinois and Bay View, A Summer Resort in Michigan. All are clean and stapled. Will still ship for $2 media in the U.S. as always.

Four Photographs, One Drawing, The Shale Brick Company, Columbus, Ohio
4 Four Photographs, One Drawing, The Shale Brick Company, Columbus, Ohio
Columbus, Ohio Unknown origin Unknown Very good 
This is a decidedly mysterious and odd item. It consists of four photographs of the former Shale Brick Company of Columbus, Ohio, plus a drawing of an auger. The drawing shows paper around the edges and old glue stain, so at least it, if not the photos too, had been affixed to something else at one time. Everything is old, but the mounting and labeling on cardstock is quite contemporary. The photos are labeled The Shale Brick Company, Columbus, Ohio 17th Avenue Brick Plant, Mixing Plant, Elevated Tressel (sic) for Cars Conveying Raw Materials to Plant, and Mixing Plant. The drawing is captioned "The auger bit forced clay through a dye in a continuous bar. Three cutters cut the bricks which were transferred to the dryers for 24 hours at 450 degrees." Research turned up very little about the company except that it was located on 17th Ave. just north of the fairgrounds, produced common brick and building tile, and a quarry was located near the plant. The photographs measure 3-1/2"x4-1/2" and the cards 4-1/2"x5". The photos are slighlty wavy from the adhesive, but are clear and clean.

This is a horse lover's information/advertising book issued by S.C. and M.D. Hartman, importers and breeders of Percheron Draft and German Coaching horses for their Columbus, Ohio farm. The Hartmans also operated a poultry department, but the only reference to that here is a full page color ad and a few pictures of outbuildings and a couple pages of info. The spotlight is definitely on the horses. Contents include, among other topics, these: the Barb, or the horse of the Sahara; an anatomical study of the horse; a study of the mouth of a horse; description and illustrations of Hartman Farm; origin of the Percheron; imported Percherons, home bred Percherons; and the German coach horse. Book is clean and tightly bound, measures 7-1/2" x 10" and has 189 pages printed on quality coated paper. Only faults are a spine crease and a bit of light foxing to exterior page edges. Otherwise quite good. Hard to find.

Photograph Family at Home, Little Girl Playing Piano, Parents Watching (1906)
9 Photograph Family at Home, Little Girl Playing Piano, Parents Watching (1906)
Unknown Location (see description) Unknown Photographer 1906 Good condition 
This little picture is quite charming, especially given the fact that someone actually took the time to write on the back. It's in pencil on black, but you can read it. The little girl at the piano is Eleanor, the mother is Hattie ,and the father is Rudy. It's dated 1906, but this is what made me buy it -- underneath the info mentioned the same person wrote this: "Note pictures and paintings on walls." I am 99 per cent sure that the father is Rudolph Huettrich, the same man wearing a Knights of Columbus uniform in a photo I have. Type Knights of Columbus in the title box and you will find it here. The photo is mounted on a photographic mount with embossing on both sides. It measures 5" square.

Photograph Knights of Columbus circa 1917
10 Photograph Knights of Columbus circa 1917
Likely location, Cleveland, Ohio Unknown photographer circa 1917 Very good condition 
This photo is very nice, but I initially thought because the date was apropos to WWI the uniform was military. I spent an inordinate amount of time trying to track it down, but I could only find some of the elements, not all. It wasn't until I remembered the plumed hats on the Knights of Columbus from when I was a kid that I made an easy match. The picture has a stamped logo at the bottom which comes down to meet the lower half of it on the backing. Under it someone penciled the name Rudolph Huettrich c. 1917. I think he lived at least for awhile in the Cleveland, Ohio area. With backing, the photo measures 7" x 9-1/2" and the image size with the second backing is 5" x 7". The only fault is at the back of the photo (see my picture of it). It appears to have been framed or in an album at one time.

11 Port Columbus International Airport 75th Anniversary 1929-2004 (postcards)
Columbus, Ohio Port Columbus 2004 75th Anniversary Card cover Fine cards in VG folder 
I haven't been aware of this postcard set, but I knew a good thing when I found it! There are ten postcards printed with black and white photographs and a blue "frame" on each. The cards are a tad larger than usual, measuring 4-1/2" x 6". All are crisp and clean with no writing or postal stampings. Port Columbus opened on July 8, 1929 with Henry Ford, Harvey Firestone and Edsel Ford in the audience.The folders (there are two) are crisp and clean also, but there is a tiny tear to the right side of the main folder. I used a very tiny piece of archival tape on the reverse side and all is well. A very nice souvenir.

It also has the beautiful University of Toledo, the Toledo Art Museum, The Toledo Mud Hens baseball team and much more. In 30-some years things have changed, so it's fun to look back.

19 Leo Murphy, Trainer The Journal of the National Athletic Trainers Association. Leo Murphy, Cleveland Browns, 1959 (extra ephemera)
Columbus, Ohio National Athletic Trainers Association 1959 April, 1959 Card cover Fine condition 
I've never seen this magazine, but here it is and it's also a souvenir for the 10th annual meeting of athletic trainers. In 1959 the meeting took place in Columbus, Ohio. The main man from Cleveland was Leo Murphy, a trainer for the Cleveland Browns for a long time. Later, in 2012, Cleveland football announced the Cleveland Touch Down Club Charities which created the Leo Murphy Field and Equipment Grant. What's fun about this item is the two goodies I found inside which just came along for the ride. But, as always, all items of the same subject stay with the main item. What I have is a nice black and white glossy photo of Murphy and a flat metal name plate which is 2-1/2" x 6-1/2" with cut-outs spelling L.F. Murphy.

Patches of Rainbow Poems by Ione U. Marthey 1974 SIGNED, Marthey, Ione U.
20 Marthey, Ione U. Patches of Rainbow Poems by Ione U. Marthey 1974 SIGNED
Orrville,Ohio Self-Published 1974 soft cover 
Self-published poetry books by unknown poets are definitely ephemeral, as most are printed in very small runs and sold primarily to friends and family. A percentage always bites the dust too, so to find one -- especially one that has promise -- is a treat. Ione U. Marthey, actually had, and still has, a bit of a following, as she writes about country things and places in an accessible voice. At the time of writing she lived in Orrville, Ohio -- that's her family home on the cover. She was also a member of the Orrville Poetry Club, the Wooster Branch of the Ohio Poetry Society, the Verse Writer's Guild of Columbus and the National Federation of State Poetry Societies. The book measures 5-1/2"x8-1/2" and has 70 pages. It's also SIGNED and inscribed on the title page thus, "To the --------s With Best Wishes, Ione U. Marthey, 1977."
