Give the Millennial Star for Christmas, 1943

By: Ardis E. Parshall - December 12, 2013

This mimeographed advertisement — typed and hand-drawn on a waxy stencil, then cranked out on a hand-operated rotary machine — was tucked into copies of the Millennial Star late in 1943. It’s a small thing, hardly meant to survive for 70 years, yet here it is when other things, intended to last, have perished.

  4. I discovered that the church still owns property at 149 Nightingale Lane. Not, I’m sorry to report, one of the high points in 20th Century church architecture.
