In 1925, Spinet House of London and Sunripe Cigarettes produced a series of 50 train cards commemorating 100 years of trains. The tobacco cards include 50 individual photos documenting the centenary evolution of trains as well as dignitaries of the time. The cards are numbered with descriptions on the backs of the cards. This collection advertises Sunripe’s “extra size” cigarettes that were sold with or without cork tips.
A collection of 43 of the 50 vintage cards is for sale here.

Festus Haggen was a whimsical character on the Gunsmoke TV series that aired between 1955 and 1975. Festus was beloved and yet was ornery, cantankerous, stubborn, and mischievous. Though he was illiterate, he often quoted the Bible, spouted his own kind of wisdom, and sometimes misquoted classic orators. Festus appeared ignorant, but a closer look at his sayings reveals a considerable native intelligence.
Festus was so loved by his Gunsmoke audience that his sayings live on 50 years later.
Here are a few favorite Festus Haggen quotes.
Colonel Sellers is a character who first made an appearance in Mark Twain’s novel, The Guilded Age, published in 1873. The Guilded Age is the only novel that was a written collaboration between Mark Twain and Charles Dudley Warner. The novel criticizes a period of gross materialism and blatant political corruption in U.S. history during the 1870s.
The Guilded Age gave rise to a play called Colonel Sellers who was portrayed by the actor John T. Raymond. This card was a picture taken of the actor during a performance in Dubuque, Indiana, in June of 1879. The gilt card is in fine condition.
There are numerous other cards depicting John T. Raymond in our collection including Between the Acts and Bravo Cigarettes. This is one of a set of over 500 cards issued between 1880 and 1892.

Deltiology is the hobby of collecting post cards, ephemera and postal history. I just love the look of vintage post cards. The artwork is so colorful and unique.
Vintage Halloween post cards have even more flair. They can be childlike with cute little veggie people and chubby toddlers. Or they can be more mystical and even macabre.
Here is a collection of products that pay tribute to the artistic appeal of Halloween vintage post cards.

Lauran Southern is a documentary filmmaker and now a children’s book author. Her first Book, Henry the Sheepdog & The Wolf of Mossville, is a timely story with a message similar to one we’ve heard from Mark Twain; a lie has the chance to get all around the world before the truth can get its pants on. Appropriate for age 7+.
Lauran’s latest book, The ABC’s of Morality, is geared toward the same age group, but strives to teach us all how to think for ourselves.
