Looking Back — “His Supreme Moment”

The D&R Theater’s box office entrance shows publicity for the movie “His Supreme Moment” starring Ronald Colman, who was such a big star at the time that these showings were “Standing Room Only”. Sadly – or not - this 1925 silent film, with Technicolor sequences, is presumed lost.

Looking Back — Posey plates

In this 1940 photo, workers at the Posey Manufacturing Company’s Ontario Street factory in Hoquiam make plates from Sitka spruce. From about 1910 Posey mainly manufactured piano sounding boards but also plates, bowls, platters etc., all stamped with the company’s winged logo and legend “Sitka Airplane Spruce” — a reference to Howard Hughes’ Spruce Goose (which was actually made from birch). Many of these wooden dishes are still around and some are even up for bid on eBay.
