It’s time for another Request Day! I do these once a month now, the next one will be on Thursday July 12th.
Lori was wishing for a Rooster Weather Vane. I found this wonderful one in an 1895 Hardware Store Catalog. Isn’t he wonderful?!
CloudGatherer was hoping for a Gramophone. I’m sure you all recognize this old Fashioned Ad! This comes from a 1912 Woman’s Home Companion Magazine.
An Anonymous reader requested an Elk Image. This is from an Early Natural History Book.
Update: Well I’ve had a plethora of comments and emails on this one! Thank you all for your corrections, this one is not an Elk but a Moose. Here’s why I made the mistake that I did. The book listed this as an “American Elk”. This happens sometimes with these older Books. When I called this book “Early”, I meant it! It dates to the 1700’s. I’m not sure if the name of this animal changed after the book was written, or if they just didn’t Proofread as much as we do now. In any case, I apologize for the mistake, I should have checked more carefully before posting this one.
And lastly Clare was searching for a Graphic of an Athlete Running. I found this Running Man Silhouette in an Antique Type Book.
Well, that’s all for this time. Do you have a request for an image? If so please leave it here in the comments section of this post, then check back next month to see if I found your graphic (Sorry but I can’t fill every request, I usually pick a few each time).
