Billy Rose's Aquacade New York World's Fair 1940
7 Billy Rose's Aquacade New York World's Fair 1940
The Gruen Watch Co. 1940 soft cover 
Wow -- what a graphic! I'd have picked it up just for that, but it's also a souvenir from the 1940 World's Fair. Billy Rose's Aquacade was a glamorous show featuring gorgeous people, both men and women -- sort of a Ziegfield follies in water, though he referred to it as a water ballet. The funny part is that Rose endorsed his ads. The one I like best says (in Rose's own words), "Just taste one -- you'll see why I'm proud to have SPAMWICHES served at the Aquacade." Now THAT's what you'd call glam for sure! :-) Measuras 9"x12" and has 32 pages and three full page color ads -- Coke, Pabst Blue Ribbon beer, and Chesterfield cigarettes.

Choirs From the Basilicas and the Vatican (Program Laid-in) 1919
9 Choirs From the Basilicas and the Vatican (Program Laid-in) 1919
New York St. Gregory Musical society Inc. 1919 soft cover Very Good 
This two-piece souvenir of a 1919 evening of liturgical music marks the first time in history that the choirs from the Roman Basilicas and the Vatican performed outside of Rome. The program does not indicate the city directly, but an Ohio reference on back cover and the fact that the location was St. Clair Avenue leads us to believe it had to have been Cleveland. The most important piece, however, is the larger brochure which measures 8x10" and is profusely illustrated and filled with information about the choirs and their history. Although unpaginated, we counted 24. Cover, though simple, is banded in gold with ecclisastical decoration.

10 Cleveland Ballet Premiere Season The State Theatre 1984-85 (Souvenir)
Cleveland, Ohio Cleveland Ballet Council 1984 Card cover Fine condition 
Beautiful from its shiny metallic toe shoe on the cover to its 32 full-color pages of dancer photographs and bios. This is not a program, it's a souvenir of the 1984-85 season of the Cleveland Ballet. How impossible it is to believe that all these young dancers are 30 years older now! The souvenir is truly that -- a keepsake of a long gone season of magic Booklet is crisp and clean and beautifully cared for.

Cleveland Official Souvenir of the Thirty-Fifth National Encampment of the Grand Army of the Republic 1911
11 Cleveland Official Souvenir of the Thirty-Fifth National Encampment of the Grand Army of the Republic 1911
Cleveland E.W. Doty 1901 Soft cover Good 
Wonderful souvenir of the encampment of the Grand Old Army in Cleveland in September, 1911. The program is clean and tightly bound, but does have some faults which include small tears to the yapped edges, a slight vertical crease to a few front pages and soil in a distinct grid pattern to back cover. This is not an oil-based stain, as it does not appear on the reverse side. The binding is tight thanks to two staples, but I wonder if at one time it was bound with thread, as there are three very tiny holes through the entire spine. At any rate, the pages are clean as a whistle and there are 92 of them. Coated paper and many black and white photographs enhance the text which is likewise plentiful. A significant item for collectors of Cleveland history, Grand Army of the Republic, or military. Measures 7"x10-1/2"

14 Dedication of the New St. John the Baptist Slovak Church (Campbell, Ohio 1954)
Campbell, Ohio Church Dedication Committee 1954 Card cover Very good condition 
Very nice, clean dedication program and souvenir with no names or writing. The booklet was made with a suede-like cover, which after lying around all these years, needed to be vacuumed. So I did just that. This dedication was for the new church which replaced the original from 1914. There are numerous photographs of the church as it was being built and after it was finished. Other items are a history and photos of the congregation, as well as letters and photos of dignities such as Pope Pius XII and various bishops. There's also two lists of events -- the religious and the secular, plus lists of patrons and nice local ads.

17 Earl Carroll's Vanities Beauty Souvenir (1940's)
California Oscar Tittman No date. circa 1940's soft cover Very good 
Collectors of Hollywood and California memorabilia will love this program from Earl Carroll's Vanities, a nightspot once located on Sunset Blvd. in L.A. The booklet measures 8"x11" and has plentiful black and white photographs as well as odd facts such as his measurements for the perfect girl (including her ankles and wrists) and his Demandments of Beauty. I counted 16 pages. Booklet is clean and tightly bound with just a bit of rubbing to spine area. Earl Carroll died at the age of 55 in a bizarre plane crash in 1948. I also have some postcards of the showgirls.

Fabulous Finocchio's Night Club San Francisco (Circa 1950's Two Brochures)
19 Fabulous Finocchio's Night Club San Francisco (Circa 1950's Two Brochures)
San Francisco Finocchio's Night Club No date. Circa 1950's - early 60's card covers Very good 
Here we have two brochures from Finocchio's, a popular club which was located in San Francisco. It began as a speakeasy during Prohibition, then morphed into a club with lavish shows featuring female impersonators once it was legal to serve alcohol again. The green and white brochure measures 6" x 7-1/4" and opens to three times that size showing individual performer pictures. It was designed to be mailed as a souvenir, but it was not. The smaller brochure measures 4" x 7-1/2" and opens to twice that. This one shows drink prices on the reverse side. Scotch was $1.15 and bourbon, gin, vodka, rum and cordials were $1.10, though premium brands required an additional $1.15. Both are clean and attractive. The club closed in the late 90's after the death of the owner.

20 Game Face Cleveland Indian Scorebook Magazine Commemorative Issue 1993; Tribute to Cleveland Stadium Official Souvenir Print October 2, 1993 (Cleveland Indians Baseball)
Cleveland, Ohio Cleveland Indians Baseball 1993 soft cover Very good 
These items came together so I am leaving them together, as both are mementos of the last Cleveland Indians baseball season to be held at the old Cleveland Stadium. The magazine measures 8-1/2"x11" and still retains its unused scorecards for the final series at Cleveland Stadium. It's a glossy magazine with lots of photos and Cleveland baseball history. Magazine is clean and bright with just one tear to lower front corner which was repaired on reverse side with tape by former owner. The print measures 8"x11" also and shows likenesses of Andre Thornton, Mel Harder, Bob Feller and Lou Boudreau. The text reads "Tribute to Cleveland Stadium October 2, 1993." Nice package!
