Town History has been shared....what a great item for the town of Castana, Iowa. See the image scan of the ML Gordon, Castana, Iowa "promotional" booklet. The husband of yesteryear could give this to his "Mrs" -- she could write on its pages, filling it with her "Wants" or wishes...leave it in a convenient place for the hubby to find. Take it to ML Gordon to fulfill her wishes....that was the promotion. Don't ya just love it. If only it had been that easy! This little notebook is 2” X 5”, includes a pencil attached at right edge and has three black pages on which notes can be made in pencil that can be erased! Notice at the top says it’s for “Mrs.” It’s a wonderful 100+ year old promotional item in great condition!
