1971 Steam Passenger Service Directory Sixth Annual (Additional Ephemera Laid-in)
3 1971 Steam Passenger Service Directory Sixth Annual (Additional Ephemera Laid-in)
New York Empire State Railway Museum Inc. 1971 Sixth annual soft cover All items very good 
This is an interesting combination of items, all in one from a previous collector. The 6th Annual Steam Passenger Service Directory of 1971 was stuffed with numerous newspaper stories about trains, primarily from the Toledo, Ohio area during the 70's. These did cause some toning to the reverse side of cover, both front and back, but I have sequestered them now in a plastic bag in which they will arrive. Also accompanying the directory are a brochure, a business card and an unused ticket, all from the Toledo Lake Erie and Western Railway, Inc. The directory measures 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" and has 128 page , all of which contain a black and white photograph, plus info on each train.

20 Play Books Saalfield Artcraft (1953)
5 20 Play Books Saalfield Artcraft (1953)
Akron. Ohio Saalfield Publishing 1953 soft cover in original box Very good condition 
I grew up in Akron, Ohio home of the old and beloved Saalfield Publishing Company. The company was known for books in boxes such as this one and also its licensing for Shirley Temple books. Saalfield had novels too for older kids, so we never grew out of them until we weren't kids anymore. This particular box is new to me, but I would have loved it.The box says it contains 20 playbooks for drawing, coloring, picture hunts, riddles, connect the dots, games and mazes. Twenty it may have been, but it ended up housing 22 -- no repeats and no coloring. Fun gift! Measures 6" x 9". Books are clean and bright and box is sturdy. One corner is neatly repaired with brown tape.

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.

Advertising Blotter Willard Battery Storage (Cleveland, Ohio, 1917)
17 Advertising Blotter Willard Battery Storage (Cleveland, Ohio, 1917)
St. Paul, Minnesota B&B 1917 Near fine condition 
The colorful scene of a sportsman in a boat in what looks like a marshy area made me think this blotter might be newer than it is. I got out my magnifying glass and there it was though -- a 1917 date. The Willard Battery Storage company was founded in Cleveland in 1896 by Theodore Willard. It stayed the course al the way through WWII, but finally changed hands in 1952. As you can see, there's another comapany name on the blotter, the St. Thomas Storage Battery Company, but here's why. Under the phone number of St, Thomas it reads, "All Makes of Batteries Repaired. Authorized Willard Service Station for Elgin County.
