Mrs. Holt's Long Beach Executive Association convention June 23-24, 1930 is my treasure. Her name is handwritten in frame above ribbon pin. This shows the LB pike, the downtown skyline (I think my apt. building is on this medal!!!) and a plane flying above it all. Sad that the ribbon is frayed and hard to read. I can just see Mrs. Holt attending events in downtown Long Beach - promoting the new airport, the new aerospace industries ...downtown shops, businesses....yeah I should probably show this to the historical society and get the rest of the story...
Next: RNofA - Unselfishness and RNofA - Endurance. Below: Souvenir International Eurcharist Congress Chicago, ILL 1926 and Illinois (blue&bronze) IHSA state vocal div1.
Last row: 2 green enamel maltese crosses - ? nurse?
Blue, red, bronze enamel A
US pinback - is this WW1?
By the time I got awards they were only satin ribbons. Which - sorry - you may have to look at in a future submit...
