John Brown Homestead, Akron, Ohio Postcard 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 morni... View more info

Taylor Inn, Lodi, Ohio Postcard

Price: $9.95

Publisher: Germany, Unknown

Seller ID: 0124


Very bight and clean postcard which was filled out but never sent. The message is funny because Lodi is still a very small town and has no hotel at all these days. The card was addressed to Miss Lura Sheehan Alliance, Ohio. On the other side of the dividing line it reads "Hello, Lura -- You will think I have died, but I am very much alive. Now will you make fun of Lodi when we have a hotel like this? Come up if you don't believe it is truly here. Blanche." View more info

Very interesting thematic desk calendar issued annually by the Ohioana Library. This one is excellent with no writing to any of the pages designed to keep track of obligations. Scattered throughout are color and black and white art, plus black and white photographs showing the various ethnic groups that made up the Buckeye State in 1977. The calendar also records important dates in Ohio history which adds to the interest. The book is clean and bright, spiral bound to lie... View more info

Publisher: Akron Canton, Ohio, Emil Chmolitzki:

Seller ID: 0177

Condition: Fine


This charming color scene is one that's rarely found of the Club House at Turkeyfoot Lake, Akron, Ohio which was a summer resort. Look closely and you can see women in pastel dresses amongst the trees. The card was never used and, as you can see, shows no edge wear or creasing. It has a divided back and stamp box shows the cost of postage as a penny for domestic,island possessions, Canafa, Cuba, Mexico and Panama and two cents for overseas. View more info

Real Photo Postcard Newport High School Football Team

Seller ID: 0188

Condition: Good


I puzzled over this one, as it does not say WHAT Newport Football High School team this is. I doubt greatly it's Rhode Island. In fact, given the barn in the background, and the fact that it came from an Ohio collection I would bet on Newport, Ohio. Check out the two guys with the Mohawks! Anyway, it's an interesting picture with a small crease to the lower left corner and spots of isolated edge wear. It was never sent in the mail and there is no message. It's printed o...

Seller ID: 0199

Are we having fun yet? Every time I look at this card I have to laugh. Five tourists aboard a fake boat in the arcade at the site of Ohio's grand amusement park and not a smile in the bunch, including the two clutching teddy bears! Still, this is one of my all-time favorite real photos! It was never sent, there's no stamp, no writing and no edgewear. Photo was printed on AZO photographic paper. View more info

Seller ID: 0271

Condition: Very good


Such a pleasant-looking lady, seemingly small in stature, yet wearing an enormous hat which looks like it's wearing her! But she still manages to be pretty and her locket and lacy dress are charming. This card was never sent. In the lower right hand corner there is an embossed name and address of the studio which took the picture, but some of the raised letters have disappeared with no loss of color, oddly enough. What I can make out is "East ---- Studio, 225 E. Main, Ne... View more info

Very handsome group shot of the members of the Old Settlers, which was most likely comprised of the descendants of the early pioneers who settled in Brunswick, Medina County, Ohio. The printing on the card shows the date August 13, 1910. They appear to be grouped in front of a church with everyone decked out in their finery. Especially charming are the little girls in the front row at the far right. The card is in very good condition save a gray stain to reverse side of... View more info

By: N/A

Price: $14.00

Publisher: Cleveland, Ohio, The Chemical Rubber Company: circa 1934

Seller ID: 0308

Condition: Fine


Really nice advertising brochure with no date, so it required some sleuthing. What did the trick was the ad for a book, Adventures with A Microscope by Julian D. Corington. The book was published in 1934, so the brochure was likely issued in '34 or thereabouts. There is no mailing label on it and no fault of note. Closed it measures 7-1/2"x10-1/2", but folds out to a whopping 28" with scientific products pictured on both sides. View more info

Twenty people on a hay wagon and the poor horse get short-shrift, but what a fun real photo postcard. It was even taken by a photography studio. On the space provided beneath the image the sender wrote, Hello, Sister! How does this look? Sadie." When you flip the card over you find THREE postmarks -- the original comes from Gracey, Ohio followed by Caldwell, Ohio and finally to it's destination in Chandlersville, Ohio. The recipient was Mary Mason. Oh, and look closely ... View more info

Booklet has pristine pages and is very tightly bound with no names or writing.

A bit of slight isolated edge wear is all that detracts from this handsome souvenir program. Though it does contain advertising, it's minimal, so there is much to read here about the history of the Marietta, Ohio area, all of which is augmented throughout with historical photographs. The program measures 7-3/4"x10-1/4" and has 64 pages. View more info

The book is clean as a whistle inside and out and has history, photographs, and local advertising. It measures 8-1/2"x11" and is printed on quality coated paper. Not paginated, but I counted 70.

Very nice book, designed in a pleasing style and tied with cording. Measures 8"x11" and has 68 pages of text and historic photographs. Oddly, there is no date, but it precedes 1923 because a timeline for progress on the current university construction shows that the library, the hospital and Wells Hall were all scheduled for completion by 1923-24. A nice look at the university, the town and the people -- even the ads are interesting. View more info
