Yet another day of waiting for the bank. <sigh> In the meantime, I’d like to share some pretty — and some not-so-pretty — things with you. There are tons of pictures I could have selected for this post, but I narrowed it down to three.

This was an ad from a 1903 bound collection of School Journal.
The last line of the testimonial almost sounds like a punch line. One can only hope that Mr. William Brown was a pseudonym and that 184 Franklin Street was an empty lot.

I hope William Brown felt lots better and lived out his remaining days in peace.
