#CH326-21 - JImmy Wakely Song of the Range Poster/Broadside
Vintage 13+" tall paper movie poster/broadside from the 1944 movie "Song of the Range" starring famous country singer "Jimmy Wakely".  He was one of the famous "singing cowboys", and was very well known in the 1930s, 40s, and 50s for his many movie appearances and records. He had a number of songs on the top 10 charts including "Slippin' Around" which hit number 1 on the country and pop charts. He even had his own comic book. Please click the picture to see a more detailed image. Back in the day, when a new movie was going to play at the local theatre, there would be a guy who would run around town tacking these things on bulletin boards, telephone poles, fence posts, or anyplace else where they might be seen. Because most were outdoors, few have survived. Some will have small edge tears or roughness, but this is true of all paper movie broadsides, and they can easily be trimmed for framing. Although, a few small imperfections kind of adds to the look with these. Colors vary. We got them from the estate of famous dealer and friend Bob Secrist. He found them in the storage area of an old theatre up in Northeast Ohio.

#ZLC055 - Speed Ball Carrots Crate Label
Vintage nearly 7" square label from the Maggio growers in Holtville, CA. Very colorful and unusual label. Pictures a flying ball with wings.
