Washington, IL: [1939-1946]. 23 black and white gelatin print photographs. 11: 8" x 10"; 4: 5" x 7"; 8: snapshot or smaller. With 4 newspaper clippings, business card, and one award ribbon. Mild to moderate waviness to prints. Generally very good. (Item ID: 15970)

A small archive of 21 original black and white photographs, with clippings and ephemera, belonging to Farewell Pope, owner of the Pal-O-Mine Novelty Co. of Washington, IL (a city of approximately 15,000 people, a few miles East of Peoria). Most images capture Pope's wall painting, custom displays, and signage promoting WWII-era movies and traveling musical acts for the city's Tazewell Theatre. 3 prints are unrelated to the theatre and show painted window and parade displays celebrating the "Pumpkin Queen" in nearby Eureka, IL. Films advertised in the custom displays include: TORPEDO BOAT (1942), COURAGE OF LASSIE (1946), HOLLYWOOD CAVALCADE (1939), MARRIAGE IS A PRIVATE AFFAIR (1944), MR. WINKLE GOES TO WAR (1944), KISS AND TELL (1945), THEY WERE EXPENDABLE (1945), and others. Pope's obvious skill as a letterer and designer apparently earned national recognition during this time as an award ribbon from MGM, honoring him with a "Stunts of the Month Award," accompanies the photographs. An excellent visual record of signage and film advertising from the studio era.
