30 Postcards G. F. Castleden New Orleans Sketches (1924-1929)
3 30 Postcards G. F. Castleden New Orleans Sketches (1924-1929)
New Orlean, LA G.F. Castleden 1924-1929 Fine in Very Good Envelopes 
These are a lovely find if you are enchanted by the architecture of New Orleans. I've never seen this many in one place ever, but I got them from the estate of a Castleden collector. Castleden was a British artist who emigrated to New Orleans and continued his career as an artist there. The cards were aimed at the tourist trade -- ten scenes for a quarter. Three of the original envelopes will accompany them, but the cards weren't in them, so I am uncertain which belong where. The scenes are Old World beautiful and include, but are not confined to, these subjects: Pirate Alley, the monastery of the Capuchian monks, the staircase of the old St. Louis Hotel, the courtyard of the old Spanish Arsenal, oyster schooners, the Spanish Gate of Cabildo, the Courtyard of the Little Theatre, and the Little Green Shutter Tea Room. None have been used and all are in excellent condition. The envelopes are a little worn, but not bad. The photo shows an array of cards, but not all -- there really are thirty!

Application for Appointment As Flying Cadet (WWII Documents 1942)
7 Application for Appointment As Flying Cadet (WWII Documents 1942)
U.S. Government 1942 Stapled papers Very good condition 
The Flying Cadets are not heard of much today, but in WWII they provided a considerable amount of personnel. Some were even on the ground working as flight engineers, armament officers, meteorologists, and photography officers. After the war, however, the ground jobs were no longer needed. The Flying Cadets, however, came back in good numbers to serve in the Korean War as pilots, navigators and bombardiers. This five page document was submitted by a Clevelander along with three positive referrals from two Cleveland companies -- two different ones from Cleveland Diesel Engine Division of General Motors and one from General Carloading Company Inc.. The four small documents are receipts for paying his premium for VA service life insurance. Three of these are dated 1945 and one is dated 1946. All are clean and nice.

Billy Rose's Aquacade New York World's Fair 1940
12 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.

British Empire Exhibition 1924 Official Guide
17 British Empire Exhibition 1924 Official Guide
Fleetway Press 1924 soft cover Very Good 
This is a fun find because I've never had one before and it's a guide to a huge exhibition which celebrated Britain and the 58 - count 'em - countries that made up the Empire in 1924. All of the countries participated with the exception of Gambia and Gilbraltar, so when King George V opened the exhibition on April 23, 1924 (St. George's Day), it was a moment to remember. The second photo shows a world map that came from the pocket at the inside front cover. The guide measures 5-1/2"x8-1/2" and has 128 pages illustrated with photographs. Great ads throughout, plus those contained in the advertising section in photo three. The exhibit and the guide would remind you of a World's Fair.
