|The pictures below show larger views of all (27) Old American or International Red Cross Advertising Items in this lot. The first picture shows all of the items and the second one shows a closer view of the many smaller ones. This is an accumulated lot from many different sources. Some of these are dated, and the ones that aren’t, we do not know the years that they were made.
The largest item included here is a ©1918 sheet music by John D. McDonald for “ANGELS OF THE CROSS OF RED”. The cover has an image of many Red Cross Angels with wings. This four page sheet music has much wear and tears, but the cover has the great image.
Next is a ©1953 Second Edition hard back book titled AMERICAN RED CROSS FIRST AID TEXTBOOK FOR JUNIORS. The first edition was ©1949. The book has (164) pages filled with first aid text and many illustrations. There is a woman’s name from Dover, New Hampshire penciled on the inside front cover.
There is a two sided 1965 American Nation Red Cross Intermediate Swimmer card. The card was from the Boston, Massachusetts Metropolitan Chapter. The card is filled in with names, signatures, and a 7/29/65 date.
There is an old American Red Cross, Washington, D.C. linen postcard. The post card is unused, but it has some paste and tape spots on the back, from being in a scrap book at one time.
The rest of the items included here are the smallest. These include the following:
“A.R.C” (American Red Cross) metal pin.
