Matchbooks From the Eloise Federal Credit Union & The Eloise Inn

(enlarge)
These two matchbooks were sold on eBay for $6.54 each by a seller in Colorado. How they got there is anybody's guess but they are useful relics to this page. Not that I bought them because even though I saw the listings I wouldn't fork over $13 for two matchbooks. Maybe if they were from the hospital itself but not its ancillaries. Not that the Eloise Inn was connected to the facility but it piggybacked by using the name for their franchise. But I'm rambling now. Four hours of sleep after a 7 hour drive will do that to a normal person let alone an insane one.

Anyway, the first one appears to be from the 1950s or '60s whereas the second is clearly dated February 9, 1970.
