A 1906 celluloid four page advertising calendar, 1906, by Whitehead & Hoag printed for A. Fusenot & Co in Los Angeles. Whitehead and Hoag was the world's largest advertising company of the day. Fusenot Company was noted for "Dry Goods, Cloaks, Millinery, Draperies, Etc."
The notebook is connected with a very small swivel ring on the upper corner which have kept this booklet together nicely for over 100 years. The front denotes "A. Fusenot Co., 317 to 325 South Broadway extending to 314 to 322 South Hill St., Los Angeles, Cal". Sounds like a rather large place of business. Above in cobalt blue print is "Ville De Paris" with the Flactuat nec Mergitur Coat of Arms for Paris with a large sailing ship depicted.
The last page is the 1906 yearly calendar showing the business A. Fusenot Co was noted. Beneath the calendar is very small print, the advertising agency "Whitehead and Hoag of Newark", closing their doors in 1921.
This celluloid note pad has never been used. The celluloid advertising cards remind me of the antique ivory dance cards from days gone by.
