Forty First Annual Baby Parade and George Washignton Bicentennial Asbury Park, New Jersey 1932

By: No Author

Price: $30.00

Publisher: Asbury Park, New Jersey, Event Committtee: 1932

Edition: 41st Aprade

Seller ID: 23521

Condition: Very Good


Amazing! The baby parade was a huge event in Asbury Park. It brought tiny contestants from all over the world and thousands of spectators and yet very little in the way of souvenirs exist from it. I had a 40th year program like this which turned out to be the baby parade's last one. As you see here in 1932 , the parade was coupled with a George Washignton Bicentennial. The baby parade began in 1891, the idea of a senator named James Bradley. You can actually see the 1904 parade on YouTube -- by the time the event came to 1931 it was much more sophisticated. The souvenir booklet is huge... View more info

Condition: Very Good


Some years ago I bought a 1951 version of this calendar and then never saw another one until now. It was published in 1951, but is a 195 calnedar. not only is it charming, but it's also in nice condition with all 12 of the small monthly pages present. The cover photo is printed in sepia and the big photos inside are in black and white. The cover shot is of Westminster Abbey seen from St.James's Park. Inside there are no notations or circling on any of the dates. Very nice! Would make a nice gift for someone born that year. View more info

The second I saw this program I had to have it. Not only is there color art on the front, but there's also a color ad for National Hair Nets on the back, plus a color ad for Famous "Fain" Sweaters on the reverse of the back cover. The Shubert Crescent was located on Fulton St. and Flatbush Ave. Extension in Brooklyn. It wasn't like the Manhattan theatres from the looks of things. Examples are these: "In Argentina", a South American melange of songs, melodies, and sensational dancers sprinkled with American Pop.There was also Joyeddah De Rajah, India's distinguished seer and master mystic, but...

I haven't been aware of this postcard set, but I knew a good thing when I found it! There are ten postcards printed with black and white photographs and a blue "frame" on each. The cards are a tad larger than usual, measuring 4-1/2" x 6". All are crisp and clean with no writing or postal stampings. Port Columbus opened on July 8, 1929 with Henry Ford, Harvey Firestone and Edsel Ford in the audience.The folders (there are two) are crisp and clean also, but there is a tiny tear to the right side of the main folder. I used a very tiny piece of archival tape on the reverse side and all is well. A ... View more info

I love the contemporary auction catalog, so beautiful compared to the ones of old with paper covers and no color pictures. The new ones are also oversized -- this one measures 8-1/4" x 10-1/2" and has gorgeous white coated paper and big color photos of the items. The auction offered European furniture, sculpture, ceramics, tapestries and carpets worth millions of dollars. The catalog is pristine inside and out and showcases 438 lots. View more info

Choirs from the Roman Basilicas and the Vatican (with Concert Program laid-in)

By: No Author

Price: $15.00

Publisher: New York, St. Gregory Musical Society Inc.: 1919

Edition: No Edition Stated

Seller ID: 13258B

Condition: Very Good


This two-piece souvenir of a 1919 evening of liturgical music marks the first time in history that the choirs from the Roman Basilicas and the Vatican performed outside of Rome. The program does not indicate the city directly, but an Ohio reference on back cover and the fact that the location was St. Clair Avenue leads us to believe it had to have been Cleveland. The most important piece, however, is the larger brochure which measures 8x10" and is profusely illustrated and filled with information about the choirs and their history. Although unpaginated, we counted 24. Cover, though simple,... View more info
