July 4th Celebration with Bookplates & Ephemera
July 4th postcards were very popular in the early 20th century and Uncle Sam was used to promote patent medicines , fertilizers and Magnolia Ham.
This woodcut shown above was done by George Wolfe Plank for the Americana collection of William F. Gable of Altoona Pennsylvania.
Peter Wiernik was the editor of The Jewish Morning Journal
Normally, I update my blog every Sunday morning but since it is July 4th , a holiday celebrating the birth of our nation I thought it appropriate to add some patriotic images with bookplates and ephemera.
Ever since an Antichrist wannabe was elected to head our great nation some people have forgotten how lucky we are to live here.
There is light at the end of the tunnel and most of these Republican myrmidons will be booted out of office.
