I have a bunch of ink blotters which were given out for advertising. These are a few.

    ok, can't resist commenting on these two middle ones. Areliczone, you are driving me crazy with your SF relics coming out of the woodwork. 701 Mariposa Street in SF is just a few blocks from where I live. and it is EXACTLY across the street from the former location of the old Southern Pacific SF roundhouse, which was shut down in the late '50s with the death of steam in '56. So this Crescent Electric supply company - and the employee who put together these calendars in 1951 for 1952 - would have had a ring-side seat for the comings and going of dozens (?hundreds) of locomotives per day. Wish I could have seen it.
