United States Turn and Learn Chart

United States Turn and Learn Chart
Advertisement on the back: "All leather Triangle Brand Shoes. Sturdy good looking shoes for husky boys. Dainty styles for growing girls. They last longer. Pleasant View Store, general merchandise, Nuangola Sta., Pa."

This wheel chart or volvelle was an advertising giveaway intended for children, who could turn the interlocking paper wheels to display information about each American state. The arrow at the top of the wheel points to Pennsylvania ("Penn."), for instance, and corresponding text visible in the small windows on the map reveal that Pennsylvania's capital is Harrisburg, its principal city is Philadelphia, it gained statehood in 1787, and other tidbits of information.

I love these, and you have an amazing collection. A friend of mine got to design one of these from scratch for a wire company last year. It's an idea that never gets old, even in the age of apps.

Thanks, Smiley! That would be something to figure out how to make one of these and get it printed and assembled!
