2 "A Fares" of a Cleveland Cabby by A Real Cab Driver (1997)
Parma, Ohio Thomas J. Jasany 1997 soft cover Very good condition 
When this booklet came out on the market its author was a bit of a celebrity. It's very simply made, but it's wild and woolly with stories of daily life in the big city broken down into small vignettes -- 70 in all. They're funny, poignant and and at times risque. Plus there's a list of the cabby's 25 places to go in Cleveland and most of them are still there! Booklet measures 8-1/2"x11" with 81 pages

Advertising Blotter Willard Battery Storage (Cleveland, Ohio, 1917)
7 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.

Annual Circular for the Eighth  Year of the Cleveland Academy 1869-70
11 Annual Circular for the Eighth Year of the Cleveland Academy 1869-70
Cleveland, Ohio The Cleveland Academy 1869 Eighth year soft cover Good-plus condition 
It's interesting that in the eighth year of the Cleveland Academy the school still sent a circular rather than a catalog to students and would-be students. The other interesting thing is that the senior and middle grade classes were populated with girls only. The junior class and the preparatory class, however, had both girls AND boys, though girls dominated. Example --the junior class had 44 girls and nine boys. Members of the graduating class were Laura Barnett, Helen P. Briggs, Fannie A. Fuller, Nettie Hall, Grace A. Kingsley, Cora Kingsley, Gussie Marchand and Ada W. Simonds. The circular shows a light skim of grayness to top front edge and an indentation to the upper fold from a paper clip. A previous owner wrote 68-9 next to the date which is 1869-70. I held it up to my magnifier and the printed date is right. A very scarce item.

Application for Appointment As Flying Cadet (WWII Documents 1942)
12 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.

16 Boys Grown Tall; A Story of American Initiative (50 Cleveland Leaders, 1944)
Cleveland, Ohio The Plain Dealer 1944 Hard Cover Very good 
This book is not seen as often as you would think. I had one ten years ago and just now got this one. It was rather inexpensively put together, but it's a genealogical gold mine with fifty biographies of Clevelanders of the day. It's comprised of a group of articles reprinted in book form. They were originally written for the Sunday Cleveland Plain Dealer and appeared throughout March, April and May, 1944. Surnames included are: Black Cary, Case, Champion, Chapin, Codrington, Coe, Collens, Cox, Crawford, Dunn, Eaton, Eide, Emerson, Frackleton, Gerhauser, Girdler, Gund, Harshaw, Holliday, Hood, Hoyt, Humphrey, Johnson, Joyce, Klumph, Kulas, Ladds, Leece, Lewman, Lincoln, Martin, Mather, McCrea, McIntyre, Ogelbay, Otis, Reedall, Rivitz, Rogers, Rossiter, Sears, Smith, Stilwell, Weatherhead, Weaver, White, Woodruff and Wysor. Book measures 7"x10" and has 119 pages bound with a plastic comb. There's a drawing for each subject and lots of anecdotes.

Cabinet Card Baby in Antique Chair Broadway Photo Co. Cleveland, Ohio
17 Cabinet Card Baby in Antique Chair Broadway Photo Co. Cleveland, Ohio
Cleveland, Ohio Broadway Photo Company turn of the 20th century Cabinet card Very good 
Cute little person in a very big chair. May be a rocking chair. There are no names on the back and no dates, so I'm guessing this picture was taken around the turn of the 20th century. The Broadway Photo Co. was located at 1150 Broadway, Cleveland, Ohio, but research hit a dead end from the start. The card measures 4-1/4"x6-1/2" and is very nice and clean with no wear to edges

18 Calendar 1956 Ohio Farmer's Insurance Co.; Canfield and Company Agency Chardon, Ohio (Doll Theme)
Leroy (Westfield Center), Ohio Ohio Farmer's Insurance Company 1956 soft cover Fine Condition 
This calendar is absolutely pristine. It's one of those where the home office prints the names of the various agencies who in turn use it to reward their customers with an annual gift. There was only one image back then, but as always it's a nice one, especially if you are a doll collector. The calendar is big at 11" x 17" and all of the tear off month pages are intact. Very nice! The calendar will ship flat for $2 in the U.S..

If you're a Cher fan and don't have one of these you might want to take a look -- it's a dazzler! There's almost no text, but the photographs are all in color, huge, and spectacular.

Price has been lowered accord8ngly.

Cleveland at Night Photograph by Mort Tucker 1984
20 Cleveland at Night Photograph by Mort Tucker 1984
Cleveland, Ohio Mort Tucker Photography 1984 Fine condition 
Gorgeous photograph of downtown Cleveland at night. It appears to have never been framed, nor pasted in an album. The back is stamped Mort Tucker Photography, Cleveland, but there is no writing on it. The finish is a subdued gloss to inhibit glare and the photo itself measures 8"x10" which makes it easy to frame. The beautiful golden color is definitive and definitely catches the eye. Photo is in an envelope with its original cardboard to keep it from creasing. Former owner wrote in pencil on it "March, 1984 Mort Tucker Cleveland Landmark Photo."
