Doesn't get out much does he Greg?

Mark - hard to give you two here....but I think I will. It's the extra engraving that's holding me back, as well as the length of the side engraving relative to the size of the crown.

'Four hungry Children and crops in the Field',

I think those issues are artistic in nature Geoff.

Two proposiitions: This thread is a case in point, hence this post here rahter than in a forum.

It's a little difficult for someone like me, who is not that familiar w/ all ads in the database, to recogzice/remember the ad date if that informations is not posted w/ the ad.

1. When we post ads or crops of ads, can we preface them with a short title stating the ad date?

I had assumed the first ad above (now changed and cropped for closer view) was in the ad database.  I assumed it was a 1928'ish ad.  I searched all 1927 through 1929 ads, and did not find this ad. Later in the post, the ad date is given, so I was able to go to that date, however now it looks like that "crop of an ad" is not in the database for 1926 either?  I may have missed it, but I don't think I did. 

If this is true, for me, this begs yet another question: why are there ads placed in forums/records which are not in the database at all?  I feel the answer to "why" is less important than proposing a possible solution for what I precieve as a "problem".  I  know this takes time, however the ads are already in digital format. 

2. Can (should) we make every reasonable effort to provide ads which are used in posts/forums/records, but are not in the ad database, to admin so they can be included in ad database? 

This way we all have the same information available from the start- not during or after the fact.  Answers or comments may be better addressed in a seperat forum post than within this thread, or the above  may be taken as rhetorical, since i though this was  kind of a "given" already.

Information about the Display Ad is clearly given.


1926 AD 12 - top right.


* any and all ads I have found have been forwarded to the site.

Its also in 1927 ad #27, but good point Will, if we give the year and ad number it will make searching for it much easier.

Yep Fifth- your right- ad date was right in the comments field from the go-get, and I missed it.  It was also in the ad database, and I missed it too.   I think I had some issues with this in other posts and carried those here before looking closly, and in this case, I was incorrect inferring  this post as part of "a precieved problem".    We do usually follow protocol.

The ad's are from '26-'27, just maybe in '28 they decided to "update" the look slightly??

Could it be the Luella, although I just noticed the lack of top and bottom engravings in the advert similar to the Lucille.
