    Blues Record Advertisements
    Unique set of four sample sheets of Paramount Blues Records advertisements. Originally used for newspaper ads, these sheets identify stamp blocks created to advertise Blues records during the 1930s. The blocks were placed in a box, and a stamp was made on these sheets to identify which stamp blocks were in which box. Besides song titles, there are rare original images of bluesman and woman like Blind Blake, Blind Lemon Jefferson, Charley Patton, Memphis Minnie and many others. Sheets measure 17x24in. and are housed in a custom portfolio.
