Some urban history here - we have a view looking north at 1006 S. Michigan in Chicago, and a 2nd view looking south.
Both of the building sides exhibit old (1950s era?) ads for Hobbies Magazine, which, in the 40s and 50s featured a several page coin section every month. Frank C. Ross was the main contributor, though Thomas Elder and others also held forth. The publisher, Lightner, is still listed at this address.
By clicking on the images readers can reach our Flickr image archive to access the original images. These are much larger and the ads are easier to see. They were too big to include directly in the newsletter. One closeup is shown above.
I may have some copies of this publication in my library, but I can't put my hands on them. Does anyone have one or more issues? Could you share images of the covers with us? Thanks, Len - this is an interesting remnant of numismatic literature history.
