Politics, war, railroads, holidays and more are found in this 1890s-1950s publication and ephemera treasure chest. For the most part, these vintage treasures show minor to moderate wear, though a few items do show considerable effects of attrition. Presidents, admirals, generals, historic events, travel and amusement all play their parts in this diverse offering, which certainly covers a lot of ground in its world hopping coverage.
