Library Exhibit – March 2018: Promotional Items

The new JHS exhibit in the Jamestown Philomenian Library features promotional items used by Jamestown business.  Advertisements were printed on ink blotters –  given out in the early 20th century before the invention of ballpoint pens, matchbooks – the most popular handouts in the days of the ubiquitous cigarette, pens, pencils, and – the most recent craze – refrigerator magnets. Logos also emblazon baseball caps and t-shirt.
