1951 Advertisement for Oeste Manor Unit No. 2 (229)


1.
Note: I am told that Paul Kloster conveyed a copy of this advertisement for Oeste Manor Unit No. 2 to Ellen Pontac, who then gave a copy to Bob Bowen. Responding to my publication of the advertisement for Oeste Manor Unit No. 1, Bob sent a copy of the No. 2 ad to me. I am delighted to thank all these folks for passing this advertisement on.

Circa 1950 Leaflet Promoting Oeste Manor Unit No. 1 (228)

Hattie Weber Museum Director Dennis Dingemans recently received a photocopy of a circa 1950 leaflet promoting new homes in Oeste Manor subdivision Unit No. 1 and has graciously provided a digital copy of it for publication here.

The leaflet was received in the form of the four photocopied pages we see, but it appears originally to have been a single large sheet printed on both sides and designed to be folded into a brochure. For example, the bottom portion of page 3 seems also to appear as the top portion of page 4. In addition, the pages have traces of vertical "fold" marks where the sheet would have been folded into three vertical panels. The panels themselves are seen on pages 2 & 3.
