    I ran across this super cute picture at a local Salvation Army Store, and instantaneously started reflecting on when I was a child in school, the "good old days". Reflecting back on my childhood memories is an unparalleled yearning for the past where simplicity was at its best. Those days seem to be slowly vanishing, so anytime I find something that reminds me of my childhood, I have to have it.

    I don't know what the frame means, it reads: Confine Copy To Four Lines For Dignified Advertising Sample No. 6001 ??? Back of the cardboard frame reads: "Forever" trade mark made in USA

      This must have been an advertising piece where the business could insert their own ad/ information. The suggestion was to use no more than four lines of copy (type) so that the message would be easy to read and impactful.

      I love it and also agree about seeing these sweet old childhood images remind me of a simpler, more innocent time.

      stefdsign, I would say your right. Maybe a calandar or something of that nature.

      Loved my simpler innocent childhood!!
