This wonderful souvenir booklet of a visit to Niagara Falls is a wonderful survivor! Unlike most pieces of ephemera that quickly get used and abused, this piece is in wonderful condition. The booklet consists of a series 25 color photos, one of which is a 2 page spread. One page in the book provides text only and is of a description of the Niagara Falls area. It is followed with individual descriptive captions for each of the photos in the book. The cover is printed in black and gold with an applied color photo. The cover measures 9 1/4 inches by 12 inches. It is a soft-cover item with a binding that is still strong and intact. A piece of knotted yellow cord runs through the binding, but is probably more decorative than functional. There is some softening of the edges of the covers with one weak bend to a corner on the back cover. The front cover has one light scratch, two light corner creases, and a small abrasion to the cover photo. This abrasion might have been original to the piece. Inside the book is generally clean with no damage to the pages other than some expected yellowing of the paper. At first glance we thought that the two page spread in the center of the booklet had come loose on one side. On closer examination we realize that one side of the spread had deliberately never been glued down as doing so would have inhibited opening the book or damaged the photo.
This is a very nice piece of ephemera that pictures one of America’s favorite vacation spots at a time long gone by. Sweetpea Cottage stands behind everything that we sell.
