AN OLDIE BUT GOODIE: We can understand why local railroad memorabilia fan Tony sent us this 1920's scan from his collection for the Burlington Watch. It has all the bells and whistles--a fighting ship, classic locomotive and really interesting ad content: "Every fighting vessel in the U.S. Navy has the Burlington Watch aboard. This includes every torpedo boat--every submarine as well as the big Dreadnaughts." As a friend would say, Yowza! 

It's followed by a 1950 ad for a novelty item--THE MIKE LIGHTER...amusing....and finally an oldie but goodie--a small putz castle by littleglitterhouses.com - click on the photos and enjoy.
