An eBay auction features another interesting item from Asheville, North Carolina, my hometown. This time it is an image from TH Lindsey's Photographic Parlor.
Published in 1898 by TH Lindsey, the back of the card, shown in this post, features an advertisement for the photographer. According to the listing, the photograph on the front is titled Connally's Ford (with the "Land of the Sky" on the bottom of the card).
As I've mentioned previously, if I had the money, I would amass an Asheville-centric ephemera collection—buying nearly every item I could get my hands on with an Asheville connection. Since that isn't possible, I instead feature Asheville items here whenever a specimen of interest comes up on eBay. Perhaps I'll someday win the lotto, or receive a grant from the City, and I can begin purchasing these items with the goal of opening a museum downtown—near Pack Square Park would be lovely, I imagine.
