Do gold records count as Americana if the singer is an American? My brother picked this up for me at an auction yesterday...it's an RIAA award for Matthew Sweet's Girlfriend and 100% Fun records going Gold. I live in the same hometown that Sweet grew up in...this one was given to his aunt. Needs a new frame as the black has come off of two sides.

Default Louis Jaeger "Don Diego" Yuma Arizona Ferry Owner & Operator 1850s

Terrific thread... I feel I could go on and on with this thread.

I have 50+ historical documents related to Louis John Frederick Jaeger (Iaeger) also know as "Don Diego". Jaeger was a big part of the early history of Yuma Arizona, helping soldiers (Fort Yuma), Indians and thousands of people cross the Colorado "gold rush"!. Jaeger owned and operated a ferry across the Colorado of which the town essentially grew up around. Many of the documents are associated with mining, claims, deeds, letters etc. Jaeger survived several Indian arrow wounds including one to the back of the head. Jaeger met Olive Oatman (she was an Indian captive since childhood who appeared as an adult with a tattoo on her chin that showed she was not native) and many other historic people. A real pioneer!

I am trying to gather all the info I can, and trying to decipher what I have.
If anyone has any additional info or contacts, your help is much appreciated.

Now the good stuff:

1. The first scan is a letter written by Jaeger to his wife - You can just feel the urgency Jaeger writes with having not heard from her - Jaeger even mentions that he sent letters to her via an Indian named Carabe???

2. Second scan is a letter from Frank P Clymers wife written to Jaegers wife - Beautiful penmanship written in Spanish - If anyone can translate I WOULD BE VERY THANKFUL!

3. This is a letter written by Jaegers son (Jaeger Jr.) to his sister back home. Interesting that Jr. was in Washington DC two months after his father had passed away in DC. The father was in DC trying to settle a federal claim in regards to his ferry being destroyed by the Indians.

4. This is a interesting article I found online about Don Diego!!

I have more I will post,

Default A. L. Rhodes voting results for the Justice of the Supreme Court Oct. 18 1871

I have attached an original hand written document that appears to be the voting results from San Diego County etc. in relation to the Judicial Election of 1871. The document is rather large, so I could not scan it in color (the paper is actually blue). I also had to scan the document in two halves. I also attached an advertisement for the Election that I found in an online newspaper. My main problem is deciphering the witness signatures at the bottom of the paper - Do you recognize any of the names? Of course I do see LJF Jaeger but am not sure on the others.

Also, the document has more writing on the back...

Please excuse the large scans, its hard to get it where you can read it.

My best guess on the names:
A. J. Neeley
LJF Jaeger
Homer Hubby
Tom Freeman
A. L. ?????

Default Grand Canyon North Rim Land Surveyor Field Books

Thanks Jon, judging by your posts over the years I think we have very similar collecting habits.

Below is a one-of-a-kind. Four Field Books from the Land Surveyors working on the Grand Canyon North Rim (1926-29). This is the beginning of building the Cabins & Lodge on the North Rim. Included in one of the field books is a diary of the daily goings on while in the Canyon. Just the tip of the ice berg picture below, also includes layouts of the cabins, design of the chairs, maps of trails and the tramway. Cannot get much earlier concerning the creation of Grand Canyon North Rim National Park!

These are from my Pap. He served under Patton in WWII. He went into North Africa and across into Sicily.

It's amazing what our predecessors went thru. My great grandparents had three boys over there at the same time.

Default Monomoy Point Lighthouse Near Chatham, Massachusetts 1870s

Here is a little part of American history many folk may not know about. I have several photos (some pictured below) of the Jones family. Asa, wife Clara & son Maro were the keepers of Monomoy Light.

I do believe some of these photos are unknown....

These photos once belonged to the Jones family and the handwriting is that of Lucia Jones (pictured below) daughter of Maro.

Note: I have read accounts of sailors who were quite fond of the boy Maro B Jones, son of Asa the Light Keeper & his dog.

1. Cabinet photo of Asa, Clara & Maro
2. CDV of Baby Maro
3. Jones family photo in front of their Harwich Center home.
4. Lucia Jones, daughter of Maro
5. picture of abandon Monomoy Light


Here is some history I have found online:

Asa L. Jones, son of Joseph B. and grandson of Asa Jones, was born in 1840. His mother was Love C. Robbins. Mr. Jones enlisted in the war of the rebellion in 1862, in Company A, Thirty-ninth Massachusetts Volunteers. In March, 1863, he was made sergeant, and in the fall of the same year he was commissioned second lieutenant in the Sixth Regiment U. S. Colored troops. He was discharged in September, 1864, on account of wounds. He was keeper in the government lightship and lighthouse service from 1870 to 1886. Since February, 1889, he has kept an undertaking store at Harwich. He was married in 1874, to Clara F. Paine. They have one son, Maro B.


Asa L. Jones, a native of the Cape Cod town of Harwich, was keeper from 1875 to 1886. Jones, who was born in 1840, had been wounded in the Civil War. After retiring as keeper, Asa L. Jones ran an undertaking business in Harwich.


2010,
Campbell Construction Group of Peabody bid $2.1 for the project, more than the money available, so the work had to be scaled back. The tower will be restored and receive new glass panes in the lantern room. The keeper's dwelling will get a new roof, siding, windows, and a well for potable water. Wind and solar generators will allow the dwelling to be wired for electricity so that radiant heat can be used to prevent mold.

Not sure if I posted this earlier in the thread but have a look.
I also have Jack Ruby, Marina Oswald, Clay Shaw and a number of the eye witnesses to the JFK assassination in my collection also.

These are two of my Dad's items. The first is a letter from Vice President Spiro Agnew during the turmoil of 1973.

The second is one of many photographs he took of Eisenhower's inauguration from a naval blimp on January 20, 1953.

Default GAR hat from Heritage auction

I generally stay away from this sort of thing, but this one's genuine, although I don't know if the 1875 auction house date is accurate. Bottom is from an 1890 Ward's catalogue.

From auction: Remains of maker's label from Lynn, Mass. Hat cord is that of a Civil War Officer with gold bullion acorns and slide with black mesh. Stamped brass GAR wreath surmounted by 5 (Mass. Post #5 was in Lynn) on black wool felt backing, affixed to the front. A black ostrich feather plume affixed at the side.

1952 Groucho publicity photo. If it looks familiar it is because the same photo session resulted in the 1952 Bowman card.

Great Groucho Exhibitman! My stepfather once appeared on "You Bet Your Life". I used to love those old Marx Bros. films. They are truly classics!

I guess this is kind of a cross over of both sports and Americana. I just picked this original type I of Bill Corum, sports writer and president of Churchill Downs, at the Stork Club with Ernest Hemingway. Doesnt have any news credits on the back only a Stork Club logo stamp and then it looks like it fell into the archives of Culver Photos. Underneath some of the blank stickers to cover up the originals is the time of 12:00 with the date 1939 and notes that they spent 20 and 25 a person on their tab that night.

As long as we're showing Americana - thought I would add these. I know some of us will remember Bill Dana as Jose Jimenez - fearless astronaut. I had a talent show coming up in school and I thought it would be a snap to ask Mr. Dana if he had any unused material I might be able to use. I also included his 45rpm for a signature. Besides giving me a license to use his material (I imagine even today), he included a signed picture with his letter. (Love the old typwriter - yes kids, this is how we communicated last century.)

Doubt that this would ever happen today.

I'm reviving this thread to post a few of the non-sports items I've added to my collection in 2012. Hope you enjoy them.

First, an amazing 1934 Whitman Children's Books store display rack, stocked with a few of the books that would have graced it back in the day. I know of no other surviving examples of the rack, which is 36" wide, 36" tall and 14" deep.



Next, an old double-sided department store fixture for 75 cent hardback books. It is 66" tall, 34" wide and 20" deep. Makes a great showcase for those colorful dust jackets of the 1930s.



Finally, here's my 1937 Wurlitzer Model 616A Jukebox, modified and streamlined in the early 1940s. It's currently undergoing a full restoration; hopefully it will be back by Christmas!

Give me a second to push my jaw back into place...

Jeez Rick. Let's just say that I'm thankful you don't collect Beatles memorabilia. First-rate stuff, as always. Your superb taste shines through regardless of what you collect.

And that Wurlitzer... that will be a centerpiece, even in your vast collection! Can't wait to see it once restored.

---------------------------------------------------
Well I recently picked up the Rack-Pack and the Cello, to compliment my 1964 TOPPS Color Wax Box & Pack. And as a bonus, my original 1964 candid snapshot of the Boys in the water, really brings the whole ensemble together.

I must say that it's hard to break the "companion piece" habit!

The only time I have ever been pleased to suffer with insomnia is the night I found this with a BIN on Ebay:

Another 2012 pickup that you'll like, Adam ... the original advertising poster for Groucho's 1972 Carnegie Hall concert. I bought the album of the show when it came out, and it's still a wonderful way to forget your cares.

That's a Great Groucho, Adam! Insomnia has played a major role in building my collection.

Here's an Extremely Rare c. 1950s Vintage Original Photo of Marilyn Monroe that was the inspiration for one of Andy Warhol's greatest works...

Well I hope folks don't mind this thread coming back. Here are a few new pieces in the collection.

Original pieces of the Great Pyramid and the Sphinx (still one of the most incredible sights I've ever seen...)




Some more JFK pieces

This one comes with the original senate pass used to obtain the signature



and a cool Jackson Day dinner program



a late 1950's copy of Profiles signed (really shows the difference between Kennedy's late '50s signature, and his quick campaign scrawl above)



and lastly, a really cool press pass (from the original owner), signed in-person by both Kennedy and Scoop

Default Figural Dog Bottle

 photo PICT6032_zpscfcba10b.jpg

http://www.antique-bottles.net/forum...-595118/tm.htm
Last week I posted a thread on some Fatima felts, two Harvard one Yale....As I was in the store buying them I spotted this 8 3/4" tall figural dog bottle in a display case...I'm not really a big bottle collector but there was something about this dog that had me and I bought it along with the felts...I contacted a gentleman Michael E. Anderson who is the authority on figural bottles and he told me it was French and made by the same maker as the Noble Catcher bottle I got back in February 2012...Link above to a thread on Antique-Bottles.net

Directly, That is some pano of Teddy Roosevelt...that's real? Not a repro? Never seen anything like it. Is that a family protrait? What are the dimensions? Congrats hecka nice piece!

kdixon, Darn that's great! Where the heck did you get it? I was at a book show about a month or so ago in S..F. and a dealer had a photo of Samuel Clemens shooting pool....I think it was like $35-$40,000.00 he had on it...

Above is a very rare jumbo sized 42" x 30" Poker Dog print on canvas by C.M. Coolidge I picked up over this last winter. I was buying a killer hockey plaque from a mall in Canada and saw it on their website...There are about like 30 different scenes Coolidge did of these poker dogs but I can not find this exact one...It's a very close variation of one called "Waterloo"...but mine has the poodle dog waitress and the lampshade is different and a few other nuances....I had to give money for it even though it needs a little restoration and cleaning....I hated to pay what they had on it but in 25 years of collecting I've never seen a large one on canvas like this so bit the bullet.

These are two of my favorite non-sports photos. The first is an iconic photo of Pancho Villa taken in 1914. I cannot imagine that there many other originals of this photograph out there. The second was taken in 1936 and features the Cotton Club chorus line, Bojangles, and Jesse Owens.

Default Not exactly Americana but defintely non-sports...

My wife and I will celebrate our 13th wedding anniversary in July. Almost 13 years ago, an old friend from my days in D.C. came to see me before the wedding and handed me an envelope containing the letter below. When you think that he's amongst the most loved/hated figures in Irish history and for a time slept in a different location every night, I think it's a pretty neat piece. And for anyone who thinks he's just a terrorist, it would be much appreciated if we could avoid going down that path. Thanks...

Recently added an amazing grouping to my diary collection. It is from a U.S. soldier who was wounded at Bataan at the start of WWII and then was captured and held prisoner by the Japanese until liberted in 1945. He managed to survive dispite being starved, having many diseases, and having his leg amputated while imprisoned. The diaries have over 250,000 words of content. They cover escapes, shooting of prisoners, deaths, war rumors, hell ships, rats climbing on them, cooking up dogs and cats, air raids as the Americans closed in, and finally liberation. The interesting thing is that POW's were not supposed to keep diaries. This guy wrote on what he had available which often was the back of cigarette packages (opened up and flattened out). I found an incredible photo of him online which shows the creative way that he hid his diaries (see below).
