Vintage postcard from the America's Exposition which was held in San Diego's Balboa Park in 1935-36. This one was from the "Palace of Photography". It has a JS copyright in the corner which stood for John Sirigo who was the photographer. The back has the official emblem of the exposition, other info, a place for a stamp, and a place to write a note. These are unused stock that are in near perfect condition.
Vintage 4" tall heavily embossed metal emblem/sign that went on a Buff transit. Transits are the large surveying telescopes set up on tripods. Buff manufactured some of the highest quality in the industry, and these emblems are indicative of that. They are very detailed. The embossing is so deep that they look three dimensional. Incredible detail. You can see all the bolts and parts on the telescope pictured. The backs have two copper wires that were used to attach them to the transits. Circa 1930s and still unused in their original envelopes. Excellent condition. They came from the estate of the famous dealer and friend, Bob Secrist.
Vintage 14 3/4" wide "Donaldson Cigar" sign. Says "Satisfy Yourself Smoke Donaldson Cigar". Bright red lettering. These are paper signs that were mounted on thick cardboard many years ago. Circa 1930s. They are in very nice unused condition with a little typical minor age staining. They came from the family of Bob Secrist who was well know all over the country as one of the premier collectors and one of the very first dealers in New Old Stock and country store items back in the day. We are proud to offer them to you, and are sure he would want these things shared with all of you.
