    Found these match book cover in my dad's scrap book. Most are from the fine dinning restaurants like WO FAT, YEE HOP's, Maggie's Inn, and Riverside grill. The other are from ships that had there names on match book covers.

      Beautiful graphics aren't they? I love them because I am a graphic artist. A few yrs ago visited family in MO and found a lot of these. a lot of art pottery which was on carryon. Took me awhile to get thru security w/the pottery in my carryon - they unwrapped every item. THEN, happy waiting for my flight "Traveler Valentino 97 please come to TSA area for dangerous items".....turned out they saw my 100 wonderful old matchbooks and "felt they were a bomb threat". However they could tell I must be collecting so asked if they could cut the guts out. Well, yeah! I want to take them home. Then I had to go thru the security line again w/my carryon art ceramic stuff.....

      Actually - The airport was very nice and enjoyed seeing my stuff. ANOTHER REASON TO GET TO AIRPORT 2 HRS AHEAD!!! ha, ha!
