No longer fabulous but it looks like a new something fabulous is coming soon. I think the Ochopee post office is still there. At the time this cover was sent it was a contender for smallest P.O.

I couldn't find out much about this one except that they're selling patches from it online.

Another, more contemporary (1960) from the taxidermy school in Omaha. It was founded and operated by F. W. Elwood who was not even a taxidermist, but a skillful mail order entrepreneur.

This 1948 cover looks like it may have been provided to passengers by the Great Norther Railway for personal correspondence.

I guess you could say this is advertising the town itself as that years carnival was over when the cover was sent. The town is still thriving "Halibut fishing capital". They're still holding the winter carnival every February.

From the Hudson Mfd Co, 1934, Chicago. Looks like Hudson's made and sold devices to apply insecticides.

I was surprised to learn that strawberries are grown commercially around Stilwell, Oklahoma, and that the town holds an annual Strawberry Festival. I collected this 1958 commercial cover from the town's newspaper for its colorful strawberry cachet.

Here are a few more advertising covers.

The first is from W. Shanhouse & Sons. They started manufacturing work clothes in Rockford Illinois in 1900.

I wondered what a "Motor Suit" and was able to find this advertisment.


I was unable to find much about the Dixie Mills Company in East St. Louis. Apparently milled and sold various kinds of animal feed.




From Wikipedia...
"The Locomobile Company of America was a pioneering American automobile manufacturer founded in 1899, and known for its dedication to precision in the pre-assembly-line era.[1] It was one of the earliest car manufacturers in the advent of the automobile age. For the first two years after its founding, the company was located in Watertown, Massachusetts. Production was transferred to Bridgeport, Connecticut, in 1900, where it remained until the company's demise in 1929. The company manufactured affordable, small steam cars until 1903, when production switched entirely to internal combustion-powered luxury automobiles. Locomobile was taken over in 1922 by Durant Motors and eventually went out of business in 1929. All cars ever produced by the original company were always sold under the brand name Locomobile."

I couldn't find out anything about the Moose Temple. There's a Moose lodge but their calendar is dedicated to eating, beer drinking,shuffleboard,bingo and whattf is Euchre?
I like the Motor Suit. Oh for the days when you did most of your driving with the top down. Photos from those days show drivers wearing goggles and pilot cowls like a WWI pilot.

Quote:
what is Euchre?


Euchre is card game, best played, as I recall, with four players as two sets of partners. A bidding game played with a reduced deck of 24 cards, nines thru face cards and aces. I haven't seen it played since the 1950s. I used to watch the old farmers play in the local pool halls of Iowa when I was a teenager. Passions would occasionally run quite hot in close games.

Sounds like the Saginaw Moose Lodge is a great hangout on cold winter days, and hot summer ones, too, if air conditioned and the beer is cold.

Thanks for the info on Euchre,saved me some googling. I didn't mean to sound like I was knocking the moose lodge. It struck me as odd that their calendar was the same every month. You can do most of that stuff at home but on further thought, there's either a crucial social aspect that I'm missing or being a social club instead of a bar they may get a break on liquor laws.
