Chapter 431 Interesting Epehemera Finds, Part 2

It’s been a busy day today, with little time for blogging. I’m going to post some photos of another fun ephemera find, a “Pictorial Review Theater” from the early 20th century. It’s a sheet of characters from the story Cinderella. Mothers could buy a cardboard stage (not included here) and then order sheets of characters from famous fairy tales. The children could cut out the characters (much like paper dolls) and use them to perform the play. A charming idea, “for bad weather days”. Enjoy!
