Ephemera

o2 ephemera plural : paper items (as posters, broadsides, and tickets) that were riginally meant to be discarded after use but have since become collectiblesCan you imagine prices like this? But you also have to imagine how much people made at the same time. It's all relative.
I had never heard of ephemera until two or three years ago. Started noticing it in regard to ATC's, scrapbooking, etc. I love looking around on the internet at really old stuff and have "right clicked and saved as" many really neat pictures, advertisements, etc., that I have just kind of put together as ephemera. Thought I might share some with you every once in a while. I am pretty sure that all of these things would not have any copyright problems since they are very old. You are most welcome to "right click and save as" if you enjoy this sort of thing. And you should click to enlarge.
