THIS IS AN UNUSUAL ITEM AND IS COLLECTIBLE IN MORE THAN ONE AREA! IT'S A SILHOUETTE BY FREDERICK D. OGDEN AND AN ADVERTISING PIECE FOR A FUNERAL HOME -- EVEN MORE UNUSUAL (FOR THAT TIME) IS THE FUNERAL HOME WAS OWNED AND OPERATED BY A WOMAN. THE BACKGROUND PICTURE IS A RIVER SCENE -- QUITE DETAILED -- EVEN HAS A BOY FISHING, SITTING ON A ROCK WITH HIS PANT LEGS ROLLED UP! SPOT, HIS TRUSTY COMPANION, HAS SEEN SOMETHING OF INTEREST ON THE RIVER'S BANK AND HE'S STANDING AT ATTENTION. THE SILHOUETTE IS A YOUNG COUPLE IN A COVERED BUGGY AND THEY'VE STOPPED AT THE SHALLOW CROSSING TO LET THEIR HORSE DRINK BEFORE GOING ON -- YOU CAN SEE THE ROAD CONTINUED ON THE OTHER SIDE. THE THERMOMETER MEASURES 2 1/8" LONG AND IT WORKS. THE ADVERTISING IS IN UPPER LEFT CORNER AND READS: JORDAN FUNERAL HOME, "A HOME OF PERSONAL SERVICE", HELEN JORDAN SANDERS, 2428 E. 10TH STREET, MELROSE 6-4304, 6-4305. PICTURE IS IN A GOLD COLOR METAL FRAME, MEASURES 8" LONG, 6" WIDE. SUPER NICE ITEM!
