++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ +++ Collection of 8 b&w snapshot photos showing a small ca. late 1940s Chinchilla Ranch operation in Minden Louisiana. I think at the time "Chinchilla Ranching" was promoted on the back pages of mens' magazines and comic books as a way to make extra money at home. These ca. 4 x 6 photos (the photo count includes 1 brief newspaper or magazine article about this particular family's "ranch," said article including a halftone photo) are mounted to scrap book pages and most of them are identified in some way in white ink UNDER the photo. (In other words, the captions are written on the page rather than on the photos): and and and and VERY GOOD CONDITION. These photos are mounted into the scrapbook using corner tabs so they are not glued or taped in and tfore easily removed by the purchasor. ______________________________________________________________________________________________________ (the fine print ...

PAYPAL IS THE MUCH PREFERRED METHOD OF PAYMENT. However, I CAN accept other modes of paying upon local pickup . Please email me in advance to arrange such payment requests/local pickup or if you have questions. Thanks!

Now that I'm finally offering paypal, please pay promptly: Winner's payment should reach me within 7 days; eBay wants to be notified of slow- or non-payers soon tafter so NON-PAYING BIDDER ALERTS ARE FILED ON THE 8th day following the auction IF I'VE HAD NO CONTACT FROM YOU SINCE AUCTION'S END . That gives you just 7 more days to pay without a NPB strike. Delayed? Then email me - I'll try to work with you when necessary but please don't expect me to do so in a vacuum.
