I am helping the Ward Kimball Estate sell off More Treasures from Ward's Collections.
Most people know of Ward's love of Toy Trains, but he loved and collected many things.
T will be many, many items offered in my coming eBay auctions.
I will provide a letter of provenance from the estate with each item won in these auctions.
This brochure is not dated but is very early. It is for the Streamliner City of San Francisco in very nice condition with minimal wear. See photos. Sold "as-found" in the Ward Kimball estate collection.
ONE OF MANY GREAT LOTS WE HAVE LISTED - GO SEE THEM ALL!
