Newly Digitized: Over 200 Matchbook Covers Advertising Whittier Area Businesses!

Posted On: May 8, 2015

More than 200 images of matchbook covers that advertise Whittier Area businesses of yesteryear have been lent to the library by collector Bob Donnelson and the Angelus Match Cover Club. Click here to view images of the matchbook covers, which are part of the Visual Collection.

In addition, the rest of the Visual Collection (which includes maps, ephemera, city directories, Chamber of Commerce publications, and periodicals) has been moved to our fully searchable database, where our Historical Photograph, Newspaper, and Shades of Whittier collections are already housed.
