    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..

    Yes, there was more paper to write on! Here's the second one that I bought which commemorates the centennial of telegraphic transmission. It also parallels the issuance of a U.S. commemorative, Sc. 924, issued on May 24, 1944. The S/S is once again designed and drawn by Ludwig Staehle, produced by National Poster Stamp Society, with Frederick Dietz as the promoter/publisher. If you thought the previous issue (trans-Atlantic crossing of the SS Savannah) was a little dull, consider how difficult it was to portray a telegraph message!

    The acquisition of the telegraph S/S and posting the commemorative stamp reminded me of a topical thread on another forum -- insulators on stamps!
    https://www.stampcommunity.org/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=13915&SearchTerms=insulators I never cease to be amazed at the scope of topical collecting.

    I also was reminded that as a teenager my friends and I would go hunting for squirrels and rabbits and frequently end up using insulators for target practice. We undoubtedly cost the telephone/telegraph companies some money to replace the ones we shot off.

    I haven't posted a cinderella for some time. Here is a recent eBay acquisition. I was surprised to see it in S/S format. I have the same design on cover. This is the closest to "cheesecake" that I have seen from a stamp collecting group. Daring fellows those precancel collectors of 1948!:jawdrop:

    Kudos to everyone who added to this entire page. So well done & philatelically interesting.
    Although, not apart of my collecting interest, I can still sincerely appreciate the love/labor displayed above.

    Here is a page of poster stamps from my Iowa collection. I've not seen a similar set offered since I bought this one and I don't know if what I have is complete. I do like the colors and design of this set. I wish it were dated.

    I bought this Cedar Rapids, Iowa, centennial cinderella at the APS show in Omaha. It looks like it was sponsored by a local Czech group, but I could not find it in the Fields-Picklo listings. I also have it on cover, postmarked at Cedar Rapids on a political post card from a candidate for the Iowa state legislature asking for a vote. The candidate's photo, in Czech costume, is on the reverse.

    Here is another set of Cinderellas from my Iowa collection. These from Sioux City, on the opposite side of the state from Waterloo, see above.
