NICKOLAS E. BROWN, OF DALLAS, SOUTH DAKOTA.
COMBINED CALENDAR AND ADVERTISING DEVICE.
Application filed August 24, 1923.v Serial No. 659,178.
To all whom it may COW/667%.
Be it known that I, NICKOLAS E. BnowN, a citizen of the United States, residing at Dallas, in the county of Gregory and State of South Dakota, have invented new and useful Improvements in Combined Calendars and Advertising Devices, of which the following is a specification.
This invention relates to a calendar and advertising device, the general object of the invention being to provide a sheet upon which the advertising matter and the calendars are printed and which is folded upon a flattened tube in such a manner that parts of it can be unfolded to show the current month or a number of months and at the same time to show advertisements.
This invention also consists in certain other features of construction and in the combination and arrangement of the several parts, 'to be hereinafter fully described, illustrated in the accompanying drawings and specifically pointed out in the appended claims.
In describing my invention in detail, reference will be had to the accompanying drawings wherein like characters denote like or corresponding parts throughout the several views, and in which Figure 1 is a view of the calendar in folded position.
Figure 2 is a view showing the calendar in partly uniolded position.
Figure 3 is a rear view with the calendar in partly unfolded position.
Figure L is an edge View.
Figure 5 is a fragmentary view showing a number of months on each panel instead of a single month on each panel.
In these views, 1 indicates a flattened tube which may be made of cardboard or the like and through which a string 2 is passed so that the device can be hung upon a wall or other support. A sheet 3 is fastened, at one end, to this tube and the sheet is divided into panels a by the weakened lines 5, the panels being of the same width as the tube so that the sheet can be readily folded upon the tube, as shown in Figure 1. A flap 6 is formed at the bottom of the sheet and acts to hold the sheet in folded position upon the tube. Each panel carries a calendar month, as shown at 7 this being printed or otherwise placed on the sheet, and these are so arranged that when the first panel is unfolded the month of January will be placed in view. Advertisements, pictures or the like are placed on the rear face of each panel, as shown at 8, so that this matter will be in View above the panel carrying the current month. This latter panel can also be provided with advertising matter or the like or it can carry the preceding month and the coming month. The preceding month and the coming month can also be placed on the rear of the panel which is exposed when the panel carrying the current month is exposed. The flap can also carry advertising matter or the like, as shown. After the month has expired the panel carrying the same can be torn oft or it can be folded back. The string'is so arranged in the tube that it can slide from one side to the other thereof so that it can readily be moved to a position where it will support the device.
Instead of each panel carrying a single.
month the panels can carry a number of months, as shown in the modified view, as shown at 9, so that in this case only four panels would be necessary instead of twelve, as in the first form. The ends of the tube can also be extended and advertising matter placed thereon, as shown in this latter form of device.
As will be seen this invention permits both sides of the sheet to be used, one side carrying the months and the other advertise-ments and the like. This advertisement canbe shown for each month or for each season of the year.
It is thought from the foregoing descrip tion that the advantages and novel features of my invention will be readily apparent.
T desireit to be understood that I may make changes in the construction and in the combination and arrangement of the several parts, provided that such changes fall within the scope of the appended claims.
What I claim is:-
1. Av device of the class described comprising a sheet formed into a plurality of panels, a hollow member upon which the sheet is folded, said member being of substantially the same width as the panels, a flexible member passing through the hollow member for supporting the device, said oanels having the months of the year arranged upon the front faces and advertisements or the like placed upon the rear faces.
2. A device of the class described comprising a flattened tube, a looped flexible member passing through the same, a sheet having printed matter upon both -faces thereof, and having one end fastened to the tube, said sheet being formed into panels which are of the same Width as the tube so that the sheet can be folded upon the tube.
3. A device of the class described comprising a flattened tube, a looped flexible member passing through the same, a sheet having printed matter upon both faces thereof, and
having one end fastened to the tube, said 10 In testimony whereof I affix my signa- 15 ture.
