|The pictures show a front and back view of this opened Old Lake View Cabins Newcastle Maine Advertising Mechanical Hand Held Fan. This fan is not dated but it is old. It has two patent numbers, one from 1928 and the other from 1948. There are two tabs to pull to open the fan. When opened, there are three panels that make up a colorful scenic scene. The other side has advertising and poistcard markings that are unused. There are to and from address areas and a place for a postage stamp. The advertising area reads as follows:|
20 SINGLE AND DOUBLE CABINS

Above the advertising there are boxes for the sender to check off before mailing. Because they are difficult to read from the picture, these listed items read as follows:
