Beautiful typography Frank Nesselson Belle Vernon PA / Clothing, Shoes / Hats and Furnishings / Don’t Forget us When you Want Anything in the Clothing Line on each of the four sides. Rabbit behind to hold presumably a mirror and cove/fancy edges says that this was not a make do craft but actually built as picture frame “moulding” all those years ago. Extremely rare bit of advertising.

Fresh from a local estate, of a Bloomfield (suburb of Pgh) policeman’s estate. I’d guess the photo to be from the early 1930s, great image of him in jacket/hat holding traffic in the snow for school children. Appears to read “Angelo’s Tire Shop” in the back with corner signage “Ford Parts Accessories.” Measures 4 1/4″ x 8 1/2″. Nice contrast. Developing error all the way in the right corner, barely noticeable. $25.
Photo comes from a Pittsburgh estate of a local writer for BoxOffice Magazine and once employee of Republic Pictures in the 1940s. Republic put out “The Pittsburgh Kid,” a film starring Conn, in 1941. Its likely that these were shots from an opening party. Measures 8″ x 10″, original photo likely taken by a professional photographer. Not a copy, great piece. $60/$40.
