Our Summer Ephemera Show

Swing by and see our 3rd Annual, Summer Ephemera Show, now on view in the east window through September 4, 2010.  This year I've found a group of 1950s matchbox labels chock-full of juicy graphic designs of the time.  We also have a small stash of vintage black & white and sepia tone photos, some titled and dated in the negative as images taken on a world cruise in 1928, and others from the 1930s and 50s.  And I found another copy of the pro-wrestling poster from last year, from a match-up between Japanese hero, Rikidozan, and various international strong men in masks and tights.
