1940's Printed in the U.S.A. 8" X 10" Color Premium Photos 

Haven't seen these before and unfortunately it's hard to say exactly when they were produced and who exactly produced them--the one hint is that they were acquired with an envelope with an old Irving Claw return address:

A past customer was kind enough to write to let me know that the Betty Grable image is the same one used on her 1943 Dixie Premium and that the Bing Crosby was familiar from another Dixie Premium.

I had acquired a lucky thirteen of these, all of which are pictured below.  I'm sure there are probably more.
