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 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.

It's printed on coated paper and has photogrpahs in black and white with the crisp map at back. Unpaginated, but I counted 25. View more info

Crisp, clean, seemingly unused, map of Florida -- just the thing for a 50's road trip. What's neat about it is that you could use the front address lines and send it back home to friends and family. This one, however, was not sent.The map sports color photos and when folded is larger than the maps issued by the service stations. Closed it meaures 5"x8-1/2". There's extra tourist info too, such as a list of the meanings of Florida Indian names. Note on front -- "Drive safely .... prevent sorrow." This was a time when kids bounced around the backseat of the car like balls for playing jacks. I wa... View more info

This is an unused linen postcard in fine condition. There's no date, but I suspect it's from the 50's. The caption on the back says it was located on U.S. Route 20 between Thruway Exit 48 & 49, two miles east of Alden NY and 25 miles east of Buffalo. This was one of the many mom and pop motels available during the period. The amenities included radio, TV, central heat (odd that that would even be mentioned in upstate New York!), and Beauty Rest mattresses. The owners were Mr. & Mrs. George C. Folkerth. View more info

As soon as you open it out spills 11 panels which together give you a look at the Rhine and its towns from Colgne to Mainz in bold jewel-like colors. Each panel includes text artfully blended against the background to provide a bit of history, an attraction or two, and the population of each town.
