John Brown Homestead, Akron, Ohio Postcard 1913

By: N/A

Price: $8.00

Publisher: 1913

Seller ID: 0092

Condition: Very Good


Very pretty depiction of an Akron, Ohio landmark. The card is very nice in its plastic sleeve and retains a one cent stamp which covers the manufacturer's name. Only fault is a small bit of bleed-through from the postmark visible above the roof of the house - minor. The card was sent to Lodi, Ohio and the message (with errors) is as follows: "Am feeling fine. How is the weather their? I have my sweater coat on in the house. Bertha and Charlie went to Cleveland this morning. I will half to work Monday night. Sat. night was a busy one. Be home Sat. night some time. Arthur K." View more info

Condition: Fine


Saturated color and a glimpse of a vibrant shopping area makes this Canton, Ohio vintage postcard desirable. The card has not been postally used and has no writing on it. Crisp and clean. Though it says "shopping center" on the card it's not the typical strip mall, but rather a center comprise ofcollective stores. I can make out the names of two -- Woolworth's and McCreary's. If it's the McCreary's I think it is it was a department store. The card will arrive in a plastic sleeve. View more info

Publisher: Canton, Ohio, Parker Studio: Unknown

Seller ID: 0629

Condition: Very Good


Two adorable little boys with no names recorded. The photo was taken in Canton, Ohio by Parker Studio located at 104 Market Avenue. Its owner was J.B. Parker who appears on Langdon's List of 19th & Early 20th Century Photographers. He appears to have been around from 1910 to 1920, so this at least provides a guesstimate as to when this iamge was taken. One of the clues of course is the conveyance the littest guy is sitting in, but I can't find a word for it to research it! It's not a tricycle (four wheels, two small, two large) and its not a pedal car (no pedals), or a walker, or a carriage. ... View more info

This is a very pretty card, completely hand colored showing the Victorian residence of one Z. Davis of North Market Street, Canton Ohio. The card was made by the Ambrotype Company, but it's a bit tricky to date it, as there is no postmark. I think the definitive clue is the divided back which was not allowed by the postal service until 1907. The card was never mailed, but reads To Nettie xxx, From Jack. Will arrive in a plastic sleeve. Many Canton,Ohio cards available. View more info

Price: $15.00

Publisher: Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio, Ladies of the Church of Christ: Unknown

Seller ID: 0906

Condition: Good


Very clean and tightly bound cookbook published to raise money for the church's building fund. There is no date for it, so I tried to do a little sleuthing, but the only church with that precise name was building in the 1960's and this booklet precedes that by decades. I then tried looking up the businesses which supplied ads, but again, not much luck. The only company that appeared was the C.H. Yeager Company which came to Akron in 1906 and changed its name to Yeager Company in 1946. The ad shows the old name, so again, it's clearly before 1946. Judging by the lack of digits in the phone num... View more info

This is such a fun find. I've had the sesquicentennial book a couple times, but I've never seen the cloth banner. Yet here they are together from the same previous owner. The banner is quite large at 27"x36" and is printed on one side. There is a small section at the lower right corner where the thread seems a little dirty on the hem, but otherwise it's crisp and clean. The program shows a little wear, but not much, and has no names or writing. Inside there is a laid-in certificate with no name filled in for the Cuyahoga Falls Area Jubilee Belles. The program measures 8-1/2"x11" and is filled ... View more info

Paper addict that I am, I had never seen a book of coupons for ice coupons until I got this one. My first guess at this was WRONG, so here's an amended listing. Clue #1 was the six digit phone number which was common for urban areas from the 20's to the 50's. The second clue I missed altogether and that was the picture of the ice box on the back which dates it to the 20's or 30's! It has nothing to do with rationing and WWII. Interestingly enough, the ServICE Delivery Company of Akron, Ohio is still in the ice business. This book of coupons is unused -- no names or writing and no coupons missi... View more info

This card is fabulous! There's no date on it because it's unused, but I grew up in Akron, Ohio and I know I was at this parade when I was a kid because we never missed it. I know it's from the 60's too because that's when Chevrolet sponsored the Soap Box Derby and that was when the Derby was a REALLY BIG DEAL. The parade was heading up Main Street with the truck positioned between the two department stores, Polsky's and O'Neil's, which were right across the street from each other. I still remember the thrill of the flying confetti! Card will arrive in a plastic sleave View more info

At first glance this appears to be a giant pig -- which it is. But it's not just any old pig. This pig belonged to O.C. Barber, an entrepreneur extraordinaire, who succeeded with many businesses before launching this early effort at agribusiness. The card is postmarked Barberton, Ohio July 27, 1911 and sent to Mr. Sherman Lee of Seville, Ohio. The message reads, "This is one of O.C. Barber's thoroughbred pigs. He is a big one, isn't he? Tom Bairstow." Very clean and nice and easy to read. Will arrive in plastic sleeve. View more info
