|The pictures show a front and back view of the 1955 Cities Service Gas Station Advertising Premium Farm Almanac Book & Boston Red Sox Baseball Schedule in this lot. The (52) page book is filled with a lot of information on farming, equipment, almanac information, 1955 monthly calendars, fertilizers, and much farm and auto related Cities Service advertising with illustrations for things such as gasoline, oil, lubricants, tires, battery, anti freeze, rust remover, glass cleaner, and more. The back of the booklet has a blank area for stamping the name and address of the gas station that would give out this book.|
The included Boston Red Sox schedule was found, unused, unfolded, and loose, inside of this book. It has the schedule for their games from April to September of 1955. It has an illustration of a Cities Serviceman with another blank area that was never stamped with advertising. The other side pictures an old auto at a Cities Service gas station and there is more advertising for gasoline. It also has a seating map of Fenway Park.
To judge the sizes the book measures 6'' x 8-15/16''. The baseball schedule is in mint unused condition. The book appears to be in excellent condition with some small spotting on the cover and some wear to the top edge as pictured. The pages inside are all clean.
