@In Stimme nient tu tu tigers tttttts ntrnt :un uniting pnt tt its smite. f


Be it known that I, JOSEPHUS SONNEDEeKE1t,ot` Cincinnati, Hamilton county, Ohio, have invented a new and useful Advertising-Frame; and I hereby declare the following to he a full, clear, and exact description thereof, reference being had to the accompanying drawings, making part of this specification.

This invention relates to an annular panelled frame or cage to surround a lamp-post, and adapted to receive and hold a number of advertising-cards or advertisements.

Figure 1 is a' perspective view of rny advertising-frame partly open and in place upon the post.

Figure 2 is a horizontal section through the same.

Figure 3 is a. vertical elevation of a modification ot my invention.

The frame consists of two sections, A and B, each section furnished with one or more convex or llat faces displaying outwardly, and the Whole forming, collectively, a prism of the hexagonal forms shown, or any other preferred form, such as cylindrical, pyramidal, Sie.

These faces or panels are for the exhibition of advcrtiscnicntgand euch panel is formed of two grooved sides, d; united at bottom and top by horizontal pieces e c.

At the top the frame may be furnished with an cave orcnp, in two pieces, G G', the said cap serving to clasp the post, its inner edge being formed to tit the snid pest. This-cap, projecting beyond the panels, serves to shed the rain, and to prevent the obscuring of the glass-by a film of moisture. The said cap also serves to protect from the weather the eards bearing the advertising-niatter.

Each panel has two grooved lips or cleats, t, and .studs I, which serve to hold thc cards J and the glass pane K and sheet-metal or other buck L.l The two sections A B are connected together on one side by hinges M, and on the other side by belts or latches N, which nre engaged or disengaged with lugs O by means of u key, which is kept by the person whose business it is to attend te theadvertiser, and to keep the snme supplied with advertisement-s.

A modification of my invcntionis shown in fig. 3, in which the cap G is dispensed with, and piece c comes in direct contact with the ost. The roove h on the lower side of thc said )ieee c', serves to rotect then er.

P a t l P PP ends of the show-cards from moisture, so that no ruin falling on the frame will penetrate to the advertisements.

I claim herein as new, and of my invention- The frame or cage A I3, having greoved panels for the reception of advertising-cards, und being adapted to be secured to each other and to a lamp or other pest, substantially as set forth.

In testimony et' which invention, I hereunto set my hand.
