I'm very lucky - I have a great dentist and hygienist. They are both very skilled and make going to the dentist a more pleasant experience. I believe I am finally over my phobia, which plagued me most of my adult life - once, I didn't go for 12 years and another time, for eight. The sound of the drill was enough to send me over the edge, and I'm a crier, which was always so embarrassing. But now, I go religiously every four months (I am atoning for my absence by going three times a year).
Harry O. Solomon knows that you have to make dental things fun - check out these beautiful letters!
they're still available!) and if they say that they're from the 1940s, I believe them. :) As you can see, each tri-fold postcard has a different Parisian scene or castle. Each letter also has a different border. Beautiful! I also love that one of the letters is orange! In the Forties, it would be hard not to notice a letter like this in the stack!
I tried finding more information about Northeastern Dental Laboratory in Detroit but alas, there is nothing to be found. When I Googled the address, I discovered that there is currently a Marathon gas station on the site.
When I think about what a trip to the dentist must've been like in the Forties, it makes me even more grateful that we live in an age of pain-free dentistry. Imagine what it'll be like in another 100 years - maybe dentures won't even exist!
So will I be using these letters in my collage work? ABSOLUTELY! I think Harry O. Solomon would want it that way. :D
