Rootin' around in the Attic

Look at the fun things I found in the attic a few years back. Can you believe the artwork on this envelope?

Your two cents worth! Check out that address!

It's all there, including the Nile Green paint, more than likely from the kitchen. I believe these envelopes are from the 1920's. This house was built in 1906 and I found these under the floor boards in one of the attics. Sweet, huh? I scanned these so if any of you want to use them for graphic art, have at it.


  1. How big is the top picture? Is it framable? Looks like just your style.

  2. I love the instructions on the back of the envelope ...maybe they had memory problems even back then? The store must have taken up two full streets?
