How was this instrument played? For this particular note, at least, it required the musician to hold it and blow into the mouthpiece. Could be some sort of a tuba. We've got the lyrics for "Oh You Little Darling," (click to enlarge) but could not find a live performance. Sheet music PDF: [ http://bit.ly/OhYouLittleDarling ]

A Break from Piano Practice one would guess! While there is little to remind one of the facade at 612 Washington St., comments below shows traces we found of the Great Piano Palace.

A nest in a dinosaur egg? Interesting, colorful fantasy. See comments below for an historical diversion....

A trifle scratchy If you're looking for a unique item, maybe this is it! Only once did I make the mistake of haying without a shirt. This could be an itchy error for the wearer and a tough go for those with allergies! Odd, indeed. Shoes look like they might fly away at any moment....

Flight of Fancy With considerable artistic license we seem to have arrived at a cross between air and ground transportation. Merrick Thread does not attempt to explain why a passenger capable of flight on their own would chose this means of transport. (Click the images to enlarge.)

For kids! Solving the problem of what to do with all those old spools in the early 20th century, "Spool Pets" helped J&P Coats sell thread. Curious? See the Arnold Galleries https://goo.gl/JZn9AN for the assembly directions.

Poetry sells! Poetic snobbery, all fat and slobbery, paves the way for highway robbery. Without pretension nor rendered well, this awful stuff sure did sell! For more aggravation, click below. -- Wretched Poet

Whose world is this? C.M. Stanley hoped this unusual trade card fantasy would bring you back for more footwear. In Ithaca NY, you need boots every once in awhile!

Oops! Another mistake! Learning in progress. It looks so easy when others do it, but doing it yourself is often another matter! In addition to drugs and books, J. E. Patten gave out trade cards like this to entice you back again.

Well before Barbie children collected dolls, though some were only paper cutouts like these from Lion Coffee. Here Little Boy Blue blows his horn, startling Aladdin and causing the Frog Prince to jump back into the pond. Hmm....not too sure about this...sounds like a fake fairy tale! Did your folks ever tell you one of those? Adults seem to enjoy doing this.
