Remember when facilities weren't air conditioned? Remember the fans that were given out to everyone at church, funerals, picnics and other social events? This is a fan from that era. The fan folds out to show a lovely colonial style facility that is the Royal Neighbors of America National Home for worthy aged members.. Pull tabs allow the fan to be expanded to its full extent. The fan was given out by the Royal Neighbors of America which was founded in 1895 with a mission to provide support to women and their dependents. Headquartered in Rock Island, IL, this fraternal organization is still in business providing insurance and financial products designed for women. There is a stamp in red from the agent that gave this fan as an advertising premium. Closed, the fan measures 7 x 5 inches. Open, the fan measures 10 3/4 x 7 inches. The condition is very good.
