    I've been continuing with the mounting of my Oklahoma Philatelic Society cinderellas and here is the 1950 offering. These are larger and I have decided to mount them individually on a page rather than try to crowd them all on one page. There are four souvenir sheets from the 1950 convention in red, green, light purple and dark purple. The stamp-like central design on each sheet emulates the U.S. 4 cents parcel post stamp of 1913, Sc., Q4. I have only three so far, lacking the dark purple. I hope to find the latter, however, and have optimistically drawn a page for it.

    I recently purchased this souvenir sheet on eBay. It is the third of three such items produced and distributed by Mrs. Stewart's Blue during the late 1930s and early 1940s as an advertisement. It is a product to whiten fabrics during washing created in 1870 by Albert and Nancy Stewart in the basement of their house. The Stewarts sold the product to Luther Ford of Minneapolis in 1883. It is still being sold today under the same name. The small print at the bottom lower left tells how to get the sheets directly from the company. To me, it is an interesting example of how some businesses oriented advertising to stamp collectors during the 1930s and 1940s. Now that I have this one, i'll have to get the other two sheets for a complete set.

    The next Oklahoma Philatelic Society s/s that I have, 1951. The OPS repeated this venue from just three years earlier (1948), see post #235 above for the 1948 sheet and the stamp reproduced on this sheet. The sites are repeating themselves more frequently in the 1950s and the s/s designs getting plainer.

    I have added two more pre-event labels to my collection of cinderellas from the 1940 World-Wide Philatelic Convention in Detroit. If I were to complete the issue for this event, I will need to find another fourteen items!

    I picked up a couple more of Frederick Dietz's large cinderella souvenir sheets printed and probably sold by the National Poster Stamp Society and designed by cachet designer Ludwig Staelhle. These are large sheets measuring 103mm x 127mm. This one commemorates the 125th anniversary (1944) of trans-Atlantic steamship service and the first crossing by SS Savannah in 1819. Dietz' commissioned three sheets in 1944 that parallel U.S. commemorative stamps of the same subjects. Sc. 923, issued May 22, 1944 is the companion to this S/S.

    A nice stamp but the cinderella sheet is much more informative..
