Nine Carte de Visites Womens' Portraits, Kentucky
1 Nine Carte de Visites Womens' Portraits, Kentucky
Kentucky Unknown Good condition 
Here we have a grouping of carte de visites featuring women of the mid-19th century. The carte de visite was a craze at the time and people collected them like baseball cards. These are all small portraits mounted on heavy cardboard like a cabinet photo, but measure only around 2-1/2"x3-1/2", sometimes 4". Often the backs are very ornate, as photographers used the blank space to advertise. These, however, are fairly plain. Most derive from Louisville or Lexington Kentucky, though we do have one from Brownville, Tennessee. Two show a light touch of hand-tinting and one has a name penciled on the bottom. Very hard to read, but I think it says Sabra Hyerson. She is pretty girl at the far right your screen in the last row.

4 Krows, Arthur Edwin (editor) The Spur Magazine May, 1939 (Kentucky Derby, Lei Day in Hawaii, New Bedford Fishing)
New York City The Angus Company 1939 Volume 63 No. 5 soft cover Very Good condition 
This is the last year of the Spur's tall format. In 1940 everything changed. Already this one from 1939 was down to a monthly, rather than a twice a month publication. but it still bills itself as "A Magazine of the Good Things in Life." There are some good things here too -- there's big articles about the Kentucky Derby, Lei Day in Hawaii, and the ever-growing sight of fishing ships in New Bedford. There's also society stories, a piece on Shirley Temple, dogs, fox hunting and more. The color ads include Packard, Lincoln Zephyr, Grace Line Caribbean-South American Cruises. Magazine measures 10" x 14" and has 64 pages.
