Postcard New York City Fire Fighters 1921

By: N/A

Price: $12.00

Publisher: New york, No publisher indicated: 1921

Seller ID: 2429

Condition: 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. View more info

Seller ID: 2542

Condition: Very good condition


I saw the word Playbill on the spine of the binder and had to have it, especially when I saw that the shows were older, from 1968 to the 80's. There are 14 programs in all, most of which are Playbills from the various New York City Broadway theaters, but there's also a couple from community theaters close by but outside the city, including Jones Beach. Some programs have ticket stubs stapled to them which is always a bonus. New York shows include The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie; Plaza Suite; 1776; Company; Sleuth; No, No Nanette; Annie; Peter Pan and more. Very nice find for a theater buff. View more info

This is a very nicely kept program. Had it not been folded in half vertically, as theater-goers tend to do, it would be perfect. I ironed it and put it in the book press and it's now completely flat. The program shows the seating diagram, and of course the cast of the narrative ballet, Romeo and Juliet, which was staged in one act. I checked out the list of performers and found Maria Tallchief in a lesser role. But a little research showed that at the time Tallchief, the first Native American ballerina, was dancing for the Ballet Russe de Monte Carlo. This was very early in her career, but in ...

Publisher: New York City, Act I: No date

Seller ID: 2836

Condition: Fine condition


Very attractive menu for a restaurant that was clearly located in the theater district. There is no date and no city, but there IS a very good clue. At the bottom of the central panel of the menu is this comment, "Act I has a "Hot Line" telephone to Golden Theatre Ticket Service -- we will make ticket reservations for you directly from the reservation desk on the 16th floor." I'm almost certain that Act I was a New York City restaurant because the Golden ticket service remains there. Here's an example of the prices -- prime rib $7.25; Cornish hen Kiev $5.75; and whole stuffed lobster $8.75. T... View more info

Were it not for a poor idea to place a price sticker on the upper right corner of the front cover of this hard cover booklet it would be as new. I took it off very carefully with a hairdryer, so at least it didn't mar the surface, but even so it left behind a round shadow. Other than that though this book is pristine -- like new. What's interesting is how it never mentioned denomination that I could see until near the back of the 63 pages. As it turns out, it's Episcopal. Beautiful duotone photographs are found throughout the descriptive and historical text. Book measures 6-1/4" x 9-1/4". Woul... View more info

I had one of these years ago and it had the same strike-out on the upper left front cover over the original price. I wonder if it's come back to me. Anyway, this is a gorgeous souvenir with BLUE pages. I know they don't look like it in the pictures, but they really are blue. There's much to read in this booklet-- first of all, the itinerary, and then on to the history and a look at the individual ships, plus info on the the Sun-Fish Sail-In and activities such as the New York Times Sail Regatta and the Shriners coming in on the water. Lots of photographs throughout too. The program measures 8... View more info

Ginger Rogers took on the Broadway role of Dolly Gallagher Levi in Janaury, 1964 and kept it until February 25, 1967 when Carol Channing took over. Did you know that the play was written by Thornton Wilder? I didn't. The program is nicely kept -- there's just a few little freckles to outer edge of front cover -- otherwise it's great. AND it hasn't been vertically creased as is so often the case. Program measures 6" x 9" and has 56 pages. View more info

I was so happy to find a copy of this magazine still hanging on to the overhang known as the yapped edge. They always get tiny tears, but some end up falling off in spots and then are clipped by the owner. This one has the tiny tears, but they've been repaired by me with discreet archival tape. This is a good issue too with two stories by well known authors -- "A Christmas Courtship" by Edith Wharton and illustrated by Rose Cecil O'Neill, the artist who gave us the kewpie doll; and "A Christmas Surrender" by Ralph Henry Barbour. Articles cover these topics: New York City's Wonders in 1909; Ca... View more info
