UNITED STATES FREDERICK HOWARD ROSHER, OF OATERHAM, ENGLAND.

ADVERTISING RACK.

SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent N 0. 662524;, dated November 27, 1900.

Application filed May 8,1900. Serial No. 15,970. (No model.)

To 0,57, whom it may concern.-

Be it known that I, FREDERICK HOWARD ROSHER, a subject of the Queen of Great Britain, residing at Valetta, Oaterham, county of Surrey, England, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Advertising- Racks, of which the following is a specification.

Ihe object of my invention is to construct a combined rack or holder and advertisingboard or calendar in such manner that the same when in use can be stood upon a table or desk or suspended from a wall and when desired for transport the rack can be folded down upon the calendar or advertisementboard, so'as to form a flat article capable of being passed through the post or packed away without injury.

My invention will be understood from the following description, aided by the accompanying drawings, in which Figure 1 isa perspective elevation of a combined rack, calendar, and advertisementboard, the'rack being in the open position and showing a pen resting on its support. Fig. 2 is a front elevation of a combined rack, calendar, and advertisement-board, the rack being folded for transport purposes.

A A are two brackets forming the rack proper and are provided with projections B, forming loops for carrying pens (see Fig. 1) or tobacco-pipes, pencils, or other like articles. These brackets are each provided with two or more slots 0 O at their back edge, which slots engage loops D, projecting from a back board E, the loops D being slotted at their upper front portion, as at F, so that when the brackets are opened out at right angles or thereabout to the backing E they engage the slits F and are held in an extended position to form the rack; but by a slight lift of the brackets to free them from the slits F the brackets can be folded to lie close to the back board E to enable the article to assume a flat condition ready for transport without fear of injury.

The back board E may have any desired advertisement, ornamentation, inscription, or other device imprinted, impressed upon, or attached to it, and a calendar or other device G is attached to the back board E, preferably between the brackets, as shown; but it may be applied to any other part.

H is a leg hinged to the back of the board E for allowing same to be stood upon a desk or table; but such leg is folded close to the back board when the article is required for transport.

What I claim, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is

1. An advertising-rack comprising a back board having brackets hinged thereto at opposite sides, said brackets being arranged to be folded over upon the face of the back board, and means for locking said brackets in a position at right angles to the backboard.

2. An advertising-rack comprising a back board having an advertising-space and a calendar, brackets hinged to opposite sides of the back board and adapted to be folded over upon the face of the latter, and means for locking said brackets in a position at right angles to the back board, substantially as described.

3. An advertising-rack comprising a back board having an advertising-space and a calendar, slotted loops attached to opposite sides of the back board, notched brackets supported by said loops and adapted to be folded over upon the face of the back board, and means for locking said brackets in a position at right angles to the back board, substantially as described.

In testimony whereof I have hereunto set my hand in presence of two subscribing witnesses.

FREDERICK HOWARD KOSHER.
