[PNW, Pacific Northwest:] [Souvenir Red Cedar Shingle Post Card and Advertisement for Panama-Pacific International Exhibition].
Made on the Summer Upright Shingle Machine
Selling one’s product in-hand, and via the U.S. mail, this souvenir post card was distributed at the Panama-Pacific International Exhibition in 1915 (“P.P.I.E. 1915”). Upon, Jamison Mill Co., of Everett, Washington was the clever exhibitor advertising their Cedarcream Brand. Also advertising their services were the Sumner Iron Works of both Everette and Seattle, Washington. Sumner Iron Works were the manufacturers of saw and shingle machinery “and complete equipments for steam power plants, dry kilns, Etc. Built especially for Pacific Coast Requirements.” The shingle left room to write one’s mailing address and message back home. Rather than hang out their shingles, these two companies offered to mail theirs.
