1857 keepsake book with locks of hair and other ephemera - John Bunyan's Holy War

1857 keepsake book with locks of hair and other ephemera - John Bunyan's Holy War | Antiques & Vintage Collectibles | Scoop.it

John Bunyan is better known for his Pilgrim's Progress, but his "Holy War..." is similar: A classic Christian allegorical novel. This 1857 decorative edition is bound in bright red cloth boards with a gilded spine. It belonged to a Susan Angelica Getty, whose name is inscribed in the front and who seems to have used the book as a keepsake album: It contains 8 different locks of hair. I also found a sentimental poem cut from a newspaper and a large, four leaf clover pressed between the book's many pages.

Rusk Auto Houses | Antiques & Vintage Collectibles | Scoop.it
I see a headline from the Fargo Forum: “Pushing Tin: Fargo History Found In Early Garages“. Of course, I know exactly what they’re talking about — one of my favorite things is the Rusk Auto House, a product of the Fargo Cornice and Ornament Co, designed to solve the problem, “the automobile has just been invented, now where do we keep it?”

"Bill bought it out of an old church," Haan told ABC News of the 1929-built organ. "We took it apart and moved it in and it took about five-and-a-half years, but that was the time we took because we had other work, too."
