Silent Film Star Bookplates - Part Four (The Cowboys)
|Ken Maynard's Bookplate Is Printed On Silk Thread Paper|
|I get many period photos to display along side bookplates from cigarette cards and Dixie Cup lids.|
Yesterday, I purchased a copy of Whatever Became Of (Fourth Series) by Richard Lamparski.
The format is quite simple .A brief biography of the entertainer,a photo from his or her prime and a 1970 photo.It was saddening to note how many of the celebrities did not save for a rainy day or are selling used cars..According to the author "The man (Ken Maynard) who for several years was among the top screen money-makers lives alone in a ramshackle trailer filled with dusty mementos of his years of glory"
That's all for now I will continue on Sunday morning.
