Postcard Fire Department Headquarters, Indianapolis, Ind.
1 Postcard Fire Department Headquarters, Indianapolis, Ind.
Indianapolis, Indiana Majestic Publishing Company circa early 1900's Good-plus condition 
What a colorful and interesting scene this is. Not only does it show a handsome fire station, but also vehicles, fire fighters, and the horse power that fueled the machinery. The card shows a tiny bit of corner wear and writing on divided back. It was never sent, but it has been written on across the dividing line with no attempt at an address. The writing is a little hard to read, but the gist of it is the writer was busy with company and likes the recipient's choice of cards. Nothing too exciting there, but the picture at the front is great. Card will arrive in a brand new plastic sleeve.

Postcard New York City Fire Fighters 1921
2 Postcard New York City Fire Fighters 1921
New york No publisher indicated 1921 Very good condition 
Great action image of the New York City Fire Department fighting a 1921 blaze. There's no indication as to what part of the city it was, as the reverse side shows no explanation, no message, and no postage. The back is not divided and the only writing is a penciled note which reads "N.Y. City Fire Dept, 1921" and a number, perhaps from an earlier dealer. The back also shows a bit of paper adhered to left hand side, likely from having been tipped into an album. Card is over-sized at 3-3/4" x 6". will arrive in plastic sleeve.

Real Postcard Seville, Ohio Flood March 25, 1913
3 Real Postcard Seville, Ohio Flood March 25, 1913
Seville, Ohio C. Burkholder 1913 Very good condition 
This sepia real photo postcard shows a glimpse of the small town of Seville, Ohio located in Medina County. The date was March 25, 1913, the second to the last of the disaster which began on the 23rd and ended on the 26th. It was called The Great Flood not only because of the devastation, but because it was also widespread hitting not only Ohio, but also Indiana, Kentucky, New York and Pennsylvania. I'm not sure what street this is, but two signs show the Livery and Gabe's Restaurant, both of which are at left. There's some people by the restaurant and one vehicle on the right. The card has bot been used and was printed on AZO paper. Will arrive in a brand new plastic sleeve.

The Story of Hurricane Cleo (1964), Compiled By Globe News Company
4 Compiled By Globe News Company The Story of Hurricane Cleo (1964)
Fort Lauderdale, Florida Globe News Company 1964 soft cover Very good 
Oversized booklet measuring 11" by 9" and featuring 58 pages lavishly illustrated with black and white photographs of the disaster. Clean as a whistle inside and out with one tiny tear to outer edge of front cover and a bit of stubborn soil to upper right corner. Includes significant text, as well as a very nice fold-out map which outlines the storm's path. Cleo blasted Key Biscayne and roared along the Florida coast via State Rte. 7 with winds gusting to 110 miles per hour. The devastation was enormous and included Storyland, a popular children's theme park of the day which was never rebuilt. The storm also marks the only time in its history that the Fort Lauderdale News (the precursor of the Sun-Sentinel) failed to publish. The power was out so long that pressmen were unable to melt the lead for the linotype machines. Employees and their finished, but unpublished, copy were forced to spend the night in the newspaper office sleeping on desk tops. Photos are wonderful -- among them are a lone mannequin standing in the window of a blown-out building with an amazed fireman gazing in, a desolate street strewn with women's shoes, and two forlorn men sitting outside a a Shell station which had, appropriately enough, lost it's S. Text is very well written and includes much detail. An interesting piece of Florida history.
