"Fringe" items


A sample of the kind of advertisements that started appearing in the St Paul Enterprise newspaper in 1917. If any survived they would be highly collectable today.


I rather like the "Four pages, over 2,000 yards..."

Jerome, can you tell us more details about this magazine. Can you tell me which issues you are looking for?

Seventh Angel wasnt a magazine. It's a booklet.

The St Paul Enterprise was a four page newspaper that ran from about 1912-1927. I have a pdf of most of 1914-1922. Some isolated issues are available from another source after that. I am very interested in issues for the mid-1920s if they still exist. It became a Bible Students unofficial newspaper from about 1914 but fell out of favor with J F Rutherford in 1924. I will be doing an article for the blog on it when time allows - one of its editors became a member of the Watch Tower editorial committee in the 1920s. It is an excellent resource, as you will see from some of the footnotes in Rachael's recently published work. Because it published life stories and obituaries, you can sometimes key into events from the 1880s.
