The picture shows all (7) Old Metal & Wood "Kiddies From Dairyland" Advertising Print Blocks in this lot. I had digitally reversed the scanned image so they could be more easily read. The print blocks have reverse images and wording. The images on the print blocks might be difficult to see in the picture this is because what you see is a negative printing image. They are very detailed and if printed the images would be very crisp and clear.

I do not know the exact years these were used, but I would guess the 1910's or 1920's. They are made of metal and mounted on mahogany wood sections. There is a copyright mark on each that reads:

McTEE & CO., INC.

They depict children that are either cherubs or angels with little wings. My best guess is that a different image was printed in a newspaper every day and you were to cut them out and make a Story Book with them. The printers blocks in this lot are as follows:

Large Frame block. This frame has the appearance of a book with a page turned. It reads:

"KIDDIES FROM DAIRYLAND STORYBOOK"

Small Title Block. This one reads:

"KIDDIES FROM DAIRYLAND STORYBOOK"

Page Image Block. This one pictures a boy and his dog walking to school. His books are on the ground strapped with a belt. A cherub or angel is flying from the clouds holding a glass of milk. The sign reads:

"TO SCHOOL"

Page Image Block. This one pictures a woman baking pies and a little girl in the front with a bowl. There are milk bottles on the table and an inset picture of a cake.

Page Image Block. This one pictures two cherubs being read to by an older man. They all have glasses of milk. There is an oval frame on the wall in the background with a silouette of a woman and flowers.

Page Image Block. This one pictures a cherub carrying or delivering bottles of milk from a basket. A cat is walking close beside him. There are also butterflies in the image.

Page Image Block. This one pictures a baby with a glass of milk. It appears to have a sheep or lamb jumping in the scene.

To judge the sizes the square print blocks measure around 2-1/8" x 2-1/8" x 7/8". They are in excellent and useable condition.
