Eagle / Longacre Press - LON-670/LOD-0.5/ZH5-5 ~ Famous Men of Today (2)


1951

LON-670/LOD-0.5/ZH5-5 - Famous Men of Today
Eagle / Longacre Press
48 cut-outs

These are cut from the comic, not cards. Here are the first four, the next eight might follow on from the first four, but they are on facing pages. The 
images were printed in pairs from 12 October, 1956 to 29 March, 1957 - with the booklet having originally been advertised in the issue dated 14 September, 1956 (volume 7, issue 37). The featured men are unnumbered and not named, so collector's had to decide who they were before sticking them in the album.
