Historical Photography, Ephemera & Posters
This sale presents highlights and insights spanning the past 150 years as seen through historical photography, ephemera, posters and advertising. Pomp and pageantry envelope the 1903 portrait of Czarina Alexandra Romanov in her Winter Palace in Russia. Depression Labor leader Father Cox, father of the Jobless Party, offers his resolution in a boldly hand-autographed handbill. Not to be outdone, Native American Sioux Indian Yellow Boy makes his appearance on a late 19th century chewing gum card! Colorful, graphic posters span the subjects of militaria, propaganda, film, health and more. An interesting array of scarce and sometimes fragile survivors whose intended use wasn't expected to last the month, let alone a century or more.
