This one might take a little explaining to those below a certain age. Before the wide-spread availability of air conditioning in country churches in the South, sitting through a long sermon could be a sweltering experience. To ease the pain, the worshipper would find handy fans in nearly every pew. Invariably, they would have Biblical scenes and, almost as invariably, they would be provided as a courtesy of the local funeral home. This one is a "high tech" model with a plastic handle.

I found these in a box of old stuff we had cleaned out of my mother-in-law's house. This one came from the other common place you would see fans handed out....political rallies. It was after I shot this that I noticed this is a relatively new one. Note that it even includes a web address.

I was wondering if someone would come up with the old style hand fans for #9. Modern hand fans have batteries and a plastic propeller! Nice job.

Thanks for the tip, Paul. You just reminded me of something I could use for this #.

Good job on the find.

Great fans. They're not what most people would have lying around their home. Wonderful treasures.
