Bloom Calendar Blotters: May, June, and July, 1927
Three blotters almost 4" x 9" for the months of May, June, and July, 1927. The blotters advertise "Remembrance Advertising." Apparently the maker of this series is C.W. Bloom of Brown & Bigelow on Milk Street in Boston. $20 apiece from Carolyn Dias of Norfolk, VA, through eBay, Jan., '06.
Each long landscape-formatted blotter has a fable on the left. May has two beavers chipping away a bringing down a tree, with the moral "Whatever you do--do it with all your might." My, what things are attributed to dear old Aesop! June shows a monkey swinging upon a huge cluster of bananas, with the moral "Heaven helps those who help themselves." July has the same picture and moral that I have seen elsewhere: "Pride goes before a fall," with a scene depicting two dogs.
