Pomeroy Washington Downtown National Historic District
This issue of the East Washingtonian was composed almost entirely of articles and advertisements saluting the end to the "War to End All Wars" and pushing for sales of the final Victory Liberty Loan Bonds. This page shows the advertisements, a list and links to many of the articles can be found here.
I scanned the full-page advertisements and those that were taller than about 13" in two steps and then connect them using my graphics program. That's why you'll possibly notice a "jump" partway up or down the advertisement.
Click/tap the advertisements to see them on a blank screen in your browser. Please note that some are quite large and may take a while to download the full-size image. Use your "back" or "return" key to come back to this page.
This is a full-page (approximately 15" wide x 20" tall) advertisement. The sponsors were Madison Lumber & Mill Co., Potlatch Lumber, and Tum-A-Lum Lumber Co.
Approximately 6 1/2" wide by 11" tall, this advertisement was sponsored by The Hub, a national department store chain with a location in Pomeroy.
This advertisement, sponsored by Bartlow's Garage, was a half-page (approximately 8" wide x 18" tall).
This two-third page (approximately 15" wide x 16" tall) advertisement was sponsored by the East Washingtonian newspaper.
Unfortunately, there was an article on the other side of the page that someone cut out.
This two-third page vertical (approximately 7" wide x 18" tall) advertisement includes a notice for the movie "Under Four Flags" and was sponsored by the New Seeley Theatre.
According to Jim Beaver's synopsis at IMDB.com, Under Four Flags was a 1918 "documentary of the joint effort of four Allied nations in overcoming the armies of Germany in the First World War, from the initial outbreak of war to the celebration of the Armistice, which occurred only six days before this film's release."
This is a full-page (approximately 15" wide x 20" tall) advertisement. The sponsors were L.F. Koenig & Co., J.N. Cardwell & Sons, and The Mercantile Company.
Slightly more than a quarter of a page (approximately 7" wide x 11" tall) advertisement. Sponsored by Kuykendall's Drug Store. This was in the lower, outer corner of the page with the "His Bunkie" in the top inner section.
Losing a limb must have been a fairly common war-injury as this is the second of the eight advertisements that shows a one-armed vet. At half-page (approximately 8" wide x 18" tall), it was sponsored by the John M. Felthouse Garage, one of the Dodge Brothers' early dealers.
Just a small (about 4 1/2 inches wide by 2 inches tall) advertisement to let you know that if you've changed your mind after purchasing these bonds, someone will take them off your hands.
