Oglebay Park in Wheeling, West Virginia remains in operation and is still known for its over-the-top Christmas light display. But here we have a trio of items from 1934 when Oglebay was a baby. The newsletter has an unfortunate stain in the lower front corner which, oddly, is not on the reverse, but otherwise is clean and without further difficulty. The two guides -- A Handbook of Nature Study Activities at Oglebay Park and The 1934 Guide to the Activities of Oglebay Institute at Oglebay Park are pristine except for a few rust line to back spine from staples on the nature one. The Institute publication is a four sided brochure, but the other opens to show a crisp beautiful map. The newsletter is a four-sided affair too, but is large at 9"x12". Altogether the three pieces offer a unique look at the early days.
