Ephemera Wall

Found two more nice items for my ephemera wall. Both were from a copy of Cluny Brown by Margery Sharp (famed for The Rescuers).

The first is an advertising/memorial postcard for Norman Ray Lambert (1933-1996). Lambert was the owner and mascot of LAMBERT'S CAFE "Home of Throwed Rolls", a small chain of restaurants in Missouri and Alabama where apparently you can still have hot rolls hucked at you.

The second item is a nice pencil portrait of a nun--"Sister Luke"--that earned the artist an A-.
