LUCY

A POEM FOR LUCY

     Around my ivied porch shall spring
each fragrant flower that drinks the dew
And Lucy at her wheel shall sing
In russet gown and apron blue


I found this poem inscribed on the back of the very old hand-painted tile shown above. It was signed with the initials 'EGL", or possibly ESL or CGL; the age makes it difficult to decipher. The poem is dated 1879.


Putnam Dyes
DYEING SAVES BUYING

This is an antique fan, made of cardboard and wood, marked "Compliments of Nichols & Herejk, Leading Druggists and Stationers, Belle Plaine, Iowa". It was a promotional item of Putnam Fadeless Dyes & Tints, which were manufactured by the Monroe Chemical Company of Quincy, Illinois.


Thanksgiving
THANKSGIVING GREETINGS

This antique postcard was sent from Loup City, Nebraska, on November 25, 1906. The message and the address have faded so much over time that they are illegible. Too bad, usually the messages on antique postcards are more interesting than the illustrations.
