Nice looking book cover. My office was giving this book away.
Vue-All Slide Saver sleeves. Great package design.
This Bell of Pennsylvania phone directory has been sitting near my parents’ phone for as long as I can remember. I don’t know what Diamond State Telephone was.

I found the handy Instant Spelling Dictionary at a renovation project work site during demolition. To my surprise, my mother bought the same book in 1966. This copy is third edition, copyright 1960, 1964 & 1967. The two color design features black and a brilliant vermilion – difficult to capture with a scanner.
Check out Wired’s article on vintage manuals!
Another one of these fine “want book” note pads. This funky example is dated January 1976.
Before the use of computers, pharmacists used “want books” to list items that needed to be ordered. I now own many of these, thanks to a donation. Want one?
The color of the cover is a pale green – unfortunately the scanner did away with the subtle coloration.
Useful reference on want books at Google books.

A nice Message Pad donated to me. The year is noted as 19__.
We have a couple of these hand-me-down chairs in our dining room. I found a couple by our dumpster and took a photo of the instructions under the seat (our chairs no longer have these decals).
These chairs were made in Columbus, Indiana, known for its architecture and public art. I’ve been there 3 times and haven’t seen it all. Worth a visit.
