1957 vintage photo (10x8") of cartoonist Harold "HAL" Foster in Rome seeking backgrounds for his comic strip PRINCE VALIANT.
Lelands Sports & Americana has acquired one of the largest collections ever from the archives of the SAN FRANCISCO EXAMINER. These historic vintage photos span the entire 20th century.
The San Francisco Examiner was the first paper of William Randolph Hearst. Power wielding and flamboyant, the paper was his vehicle, his voice. The Examiner , coveted by the masses for its lurid sensationalism, was as important as TV is today to popular culture.
The photo archives were the vehicle used to create this fervor, and now the ORIGINAL PHOTOS are available for sale for the very first time.
Tiqu is one of the few eBay sites chosen by Leland's to sell from this glorious collection.
The majority of the photographs are fully identified and back-stamped with dates. All will be listed with low opening bids and no reserves. Included is a mix of subjects including Landmarks, historical, political, transportation, Golden Age of Hollywood, comic character and all facets of entertainment from the early to the late 20th century.A0342
