This is an interesting item, published for a contest which was advertised around the world. In the U.S. the kit was sent via the local newspapers, in this case the Detroit Times. Oddly, there is no year stated, so I did some research and found a 1932 Syracuse, New York newspaper story about the contest. Then envelope had many small tears, so I taped the edges to stabilize it. Inside here is a card about the contest itself, another one with intricate instructions and four large cards with many, many, many pieces to assemble. The sad part is, though not surprising, only boys were allowed to compete for college scholarships and money. Not only did they mention it, but they mentioned it many times. Even the application reads "Boy's Name." Nonetheless this project is a gem of paper engineering. The envelope measures 13-1/2" x 18-1/2" and all items fit inside. Take a look on Google and see the beautiful examples in full color.
