So the legend is that Ole Evinrude was picnicking on an island in Okauchee Lake near Oconomowoc, Wisconsin with his girlfriend and business assistant Bess, who wanted ice cream. Ole rowed back to shore for it, but the ice cream melted by the time he returned. Determined never to let this happen again, Ole designed an engine to replace the oar as a means of boat propulsion.

Picked up another Veg-A-Tab Nerve tonic all-over ad cover to match the one I posted on page 13, here.

http://goscf.com/t/27335&whichpage=13#708985

This one is from a much larger (or longer lasting,) town, Monroe was open from 26 Jun 1897 to 31 Jan 1912. This is the current Williams LKU for the first of Monroe's two postmarks.
The previously posted Arthur cover is the current EKU for that short- lived town's postmark, 19 Feb 1903 to 15 Dec 1905.

A couple of covers from Golden Eagle Milling Co in Petaluma, Cal. hiding in my RPO collection.
I find it difficult to show these two covers without explaining (a least somewhat) how the RPO name changed. Ukiah & San Fran becomes Willits & San Fran in 1903 when the rails reached Willits, 26 miles north of Ukiah.
I've been trying to pin down the exact date of the change and have it down to within six days. The Jun 15 1903 Ukiah & San Fran is struck on a postal card, and obscured by a San Francisco receiving cancel, but the Willits & San Fran Jun 21 1903 cancel is also on an Advertising cover.




On to the Golden Eagle Milling covers; I've posted the Ukiah & San Fran back on 12-28-2020.

WWII patriotic cover for a Milwaukee chemical company. Offensive and politically incorrect.

Sorta classic. Unfortunately, whether I take the phone pic as a portrait or landscape, it always appears rotated to the side...




THANK YOU - to the person who re-oriented these to be upright!

A couple of Milwaukee meat packers showing their wares. Usinger is still in the same location as it was when this cover was posted. The Usinger cover paying the correct 3 ounce rate to Germany.

Here's a nice corner card combined with the applied postage stamp. The Liebel House was a grand hotel built in the 1880s and obliterated when a boiler blew in 1901. That was the end of theLiebel hotel, but here's a cover being used some 11 years after the hotel's demise.

re: Liebel Hotel

A very nice "stamp collar" envelope!

I believe the the information on the Liebel Hotel on the current iteration of the Wikipedia page is incomplete and misleading (apparently your info source from Reinhard Liebel's page). From the Wiki illustration of the hotel (with a truck to the left), it becomes clear the hotel was rebuilt after the 1901 disaster, which is also consistent with the same image being used for picture postcards, this one posted in 1913.

Will add this one:
New Orleans April 13, 1889

La Belle Creole Whiskey - "Hand Made Sour Mash" (Can't find any history? )

H.W Smith & Co Distillers. Cincinnati Ohio (1876-1901)

F. Hollander & Co. New Orleans, La

"Frederick Hollander was one of the city's more successful wine, liquor and beer importers and dealers in the late 19th century. He was originally with the firm of Kieffer and Hollander before forming his own business, F. Hollander & Co., in 1870."

Here are some of my latest acquisitions of advertising covers in which I include single and folded postcards. For this post I declare any cover over 60 years old is classic. In addition to being an ad cover each has other interesting facets to find:




4-5 ounces of lace or lace making thread contained within.







The building, now known as The Ferry Building still stands, however, the flag pole on the top was sent askew during the great 1989 Loma Prieta Earthquake. The pole and other surrounding Bay Area damage has been repaired and the 63 dead long buried. Even the eastern span of the Oakland San Francisco Bridge has been replaced, that was where the bridge deck collapsed.







Note here the very early reference to Hartz Mountain Canaries. Such were a breed of domestic (Germany) canary bred in the Upper Harz mountains of Germany. The birds were bred in the Upper Harz between Lautenthal and Sankt Andreasberg in the middle of the 19th century and achieved European-wide fame.

The US Company Hartz Mountain Company's story begins in 1926 when an almost penniless 26-year-old Max Stern decided to leave his native Germany for the promise of America.

A childhood friend of Stern's, a local pet dealer, had borrowed a modest sum and could only pay back the loan with 5,000 singing canaries. Stern accepted the canaries and decided to sell them in New York City.

Stern negotiated free passage to America on the Hamburg American Steamship Line and arrived in New York not knowing a word of English. But he did sell the singing canaries to the John Wannamaker Department Store at Astor Place in Manhattan and soon thereafter established his business nearby at 36 Cooper Square.

Stern went back to his native Germany again and again, returning to America each time with more singing canaries that he now sold to a growing customer base including R.H. Macy, Sears Roebuck, F.W. Woolworth, W. T. Grant, S.S. Kresge and others. By 1932, Stern was the largest livestock importer in America and decided to expand into packaged bird foods. The Hartz Mountain line of pet products was born.







Here is some bright color.





Nice destination with Cuban regular issues, not dues, used for the shortage in postage.






Now you see how everyone was drawn to the greater Los Angeles metropolitan basin.







Wriggly was not just chewing gum. Nice 17 cent solo here as well.







To Taiwan, China.

Bradford, Pa. May 11, 1880 (UX5)

(Some history)
http://justacarguy.blogspot.com/201...history.html

SCOTT OIL COMPANY, LIMITED - Incorporation Date: 18 March 1880 in Pa.
(Inactive)
(I'm only guessing this is the same Scott)



(For ref, not my PC)




Wellsville was having its own oil boom:
"...The first oil boom came later in Wellsville's history, several decades after the founding of the town and village when oil was discovered in Wellsville in 1879 by O.P. Taylor in his famous "Triangle No. 1" well in Petrolia, west of Wellsville..."
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wellsville,_New_York
Bradford, Pa. to Wellsville N.Y. ~46 mi.


As broker, asking investor to extend loan for well owner.
"...they now have 5 wells down, and I think they are no ones pasties..." (patsy?)

Even with "5 wells down", no telling how much they were producing?

You'll see from the history, not long after, the PA oil boom had started to decline in favor of other areas.

Can't locate any other information on A.C. Scott, Mr. Patterson or their investments.
