|The pictures below show larger front and back views of this 1942 New England Sportsmen's and Boat Show Advertisement & Ticket Stub. This page had once been in a scrap book. On the back is paper loss and extra lined paper from when someone removed it from a scrapbook page. This event took place during World War II. The front has a nice colorful image of a Native American Indian with costume and headdress. At the lower left corner, the ticket stub from the Sportsman event is pasted to the page covering part of the text. What can be read on this side reads as follows:|

The back of this advertisement has an image of a man with a microphone in the center with illustrations of sporting events around him including: Hockey, Basketball, Boxing, Track, Rowing or Crew, Baseball, Tennis, Horse Racing, Football, Wresting, and Skiing. This ad was for The Yankee Network radio with “Round The Sports Clock” with Jim Britt. Unfortunately much of it can not be read.
The advertising page measures 8-3/8'' x 11-1/8''. One side (the event side) appears to be in excellent condition as pictured. The page does have a center horizontal fold.
