"ELECTRIC COFFEE PERCOLATOR / Coffee-making a dainty dining room pleasure / instead of a dirty kitchen task. Ask about it." unused real photo postcard with the following advertising text in the back message area 'SOUVENIR FROM THE BROOKLYN EDISON EXHIBIT AT THE 1908 ELECTRICAL SHOW , MADISON SQUARE GARDEN, OCT 3rd to 14th, inclusive'. That event was described & devices shown there were enumerated in great detail in the November 7 1908 Electrical World, starting at page 853. The 'coffee pot' mentioned on page 855 was built by the Simplex Heating Company. As far as we can determine, this is the only surviving postcard focusing exclusively on that device. $30.00 ean(b)f NEW / NUEVO / NY
"This toaster is one of my birthday gifts. It makes delicious toast and is great fun. I wish you had one. The Edison Company sell(sic) them. Jessica" real photo post card mailed NOV 25 1908 at Detroit Michigan to Mrs. Henry Keel in that city. This rarely-seen early design had the bread flat to the table instead of perpendicular to it--the same orientation that mimicked how toast was made over a fire since the Middle Ages! The manual flipping of bread, as seen here, in any kind of toaster was not eliminated until 1913. If you look closely in the background there are 3 other electrical devices; the middle one is the very electric coffee percolater seen on the postcard above! $30.00 eaf NEW / NUEVO / NY

"CI8CW" QSL viewcard showing the ICOM radio equipment provided to the skiers in a joint Russian/Canadian expedition from Severnaya Zemlya Archipelago to Cape Colombia on Ellesmere Island which was successful.

"ELIX" unused circa-1920 advertising postcard for incandescent light bulbs manufactured by Elix (Brussels, Belgium), slightly wider than regular-size, excellent condition.

L. Draper / Office' (GE engineer with patents to his credit, worked there circa 1914-1921), slight toning shows in the front margins.
