Change the Date Novelty Congratulations Postcard 1908

By: N/A

Price: $16.95

Publisher: Unknown: 1909

Seller ID: 0139

Condition: Very good


This is a truly unique postcard, as there are two operating wheels which allow you to change both the month and the day. Both work very well, but you have to grasp the slim edges with your nails to do it. Quite a novelty and very pretty in pastel. The card was mailed with no message to Bertha Randall of 310 W/. Smith Road, Medina, Ohio -- right here when I am! Only fault is an erasure at front of green mailbox where name of sender had been. View more info

Postcard "The First Jury" Akron, Ohio Court House (1909)

By: N/A

Price: $20.00

Publisher: Akron, Ohio, Long & Taylor Comopany: 1909

Seller ID: 1333

Condition: Good


Depicted in this photo is the second court house in Akron, Ohio. It was completed in 1908 and there on the steps are the first jury in the new building. The card is postmarked January 25, 1909 and was sent to Edna Stocksdale of Dundee, Ohio. The message appears to have been partially erased and is virtually unreadable. Card also shows some smudges at back, but the main problem is a horizontal crease to entire card. The good news is it's in no danger of snapping off and is not hugely noticeable. This is an uncoomin card and I have placed it in a plastic sleeve. View more info

Very handsome little program with die-cut edges proudly commemorating the 7th Annual Commencement Program (1886) of Attica High School in Attica, Ohio (Seneca County).

Leather Postcard Easter Greeting

By: N/A

Price: $8.00

Publisher: 1907

Seller ID: 0034

Condition: Good


Leather postcards were quite the fad in the early 19th century. What appears to be stitching around the edges of this one is not -- it's faux stitching. Many leather cards tend to be humorous, but here we have a nice Easter greeting with a pretty girl on an egg. There is no message -- just the address to Miss Josephine Hickey of Scio, Ohio. Note small stain over the H which caused the ink to run. Otherwise very nice. View more info

Pretty invitation professionally printed and then decorated with flowers and ribbon by hand. The invitation is one-sided and printed on heavy card stock with decorative scalloped edges on all four sides. It measures 4"x6-1/2" and is in very nice condition. I failed to find anything about the sponsoring group, but Scio College had more lives than a cat. It began as Rural Seminary, a Methodist Episcopal school, and then became New Market College named for its town, and then it was the One Study University which required students to take classes only in their major. That apparently didn't worked ... View more info

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

What a cutie this is! Three little chicks take over a nest with a big red Easter egg and oust their featherd friends with their plain white one. The card is brightly colored with a slightly shiny surface, and is lightly embossed. There is virtually no edge wear. The divided back has been used and the stamp placed at a jaunty angle. It's addressed to Master (Illegible) West of Creston,Ohio. The message is dated March 16, 1910, but is very hard to decipher. Here's my best effort (with misspellings): "Dear Sir, I certently sea (?) how you enjoy thorz good old spring days and (illegible). I did th... View more info

Silver and purple make a pretty palette for a Christmas card featuring two children bringing home a Christmas tree in the snow. The card is embossed and is very nice with no corner wear. It was postally used, but the stamp has fallen off. The divided back has this short message: "From Aloina to Clarens" with the address as Clarence Nobis, Pemberville, Ohio" View more info

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

This is a cool thing, whether you are an alum yourself or are looking for an ancestor who was a member. Looks like this was quite a bash, as brothers descended on the Hotel Hollendan for a five day gala -- December 27th to the 31st. It's interesting to note that Zeta Beta Tau was the first Jewish fraternity in the U.S.. It's not sectarian anymore, but it still was at the time of this event. The brochure measures 5-1/2"x8" and pulls out to reveal five printed page on the front and five on the back. Members came from City College of New York, Columbia, Pennsylvania.

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

This two-piece souvenir of a 1919 evening of liturgical music marks the first time in history that the choirs from the Roman Basilicas and the Vatican performed outside of Rome. The program does not indicate the city directly, but an Ohio reference on back cover and the fact that the location was St. Clair Avenue leads us to believe it had to have been Cleveland. The most important piece, however, is the larger brochure which measures 8x10" and is profusely illustrated and filled with information about the choirs and their history. Although unpaginated, we counted 24. Cover, though simple, is ... View more info

The perfect card for people who don't like to write messages! This one actually has one and it was mailed from Seville, Ohio to Bertha Randall of Medina, Ohio -- not too far! It reads with misspelling, "Are you coming with your Ma when she comes. Ma doesn't feal quite herself this morn. (last sentence unreadable)" The sender may be Nelle Horn, as this name is written in the upper left corner. Card is undated but clearly. given furnishings and clothing on the front, it dates from around 1910. The card is in great conditon save browning to corners from having been kept in an album.

Charming marriage certificate booklet printed in 1900 and used in 1913 and then given to the couple as a memento from the church in which they were married -- Trinity Lutheran of Akron, Ohio. Tied with a cord and filled with pretty period flowers and flourishes, poems, and religious admonitions. It's thirteen pages of turn-of-the century charm -- and large too at 6"x7-1/2" The clear, easy to read handwriting declares that it certifies that Henry J. Burnett and Miss Elizabeth K. Anderson were united in Holy Matrimony on the third day of December, 1913 at the minister's residence. It's signed on... View more info
