Meal Tickets

With grateful thanks to Mike Castro, below are the three convention programs that mention the special meal tickets, one of which features in the previous post. The programs from top to bottom are 1935, 1931 and 1928.

Then below the programs is a photo of an original printing block that was used for the logo.

Thank you Mike for the pictures of the programs. Just to clarify, Mike has provided an earlier printing plate for the IBSA that was stamped on the back of JFR's books typically in the 1920s or so, This morphed into the WT emblem that we see on JFR's books from the mid 30s to 40s I believe. I would love to know why the change was made and when the exact change in the rear book stampings was done if anyone has any info on this, perhaps Mike may know. But the WT on the rear of the books is an exact match to that shown on the ticket stub. Can someone please state where this image of the "stub" was found?

Wrong printing block. That's the earlier ISBA block.
