This is a promotional single piece of paper with text and half tone photographs - signed in blue ink by Thomas, printed on two sides. It appears to have been printed in the 1930's, possibly by the The Alber Bureau of Cleveland, Ohio, Louis J. Alber, President. One side is all text referencing Lowell Thomas and his "Wonder-Films". Two paragraphs, then two subjects - about two of the films: "With Lawrence in Arabia and Allenby in Palestine", plus "Into Forbidden Afghanistan". The reverse side features four photos. One with Col. Lawrence - the famous one of both on their haunches in desert head gear. Another is of Thomas in a British style desert hat with a second hat that fits over the first to spread out and protect the neck and shoulders. In this same photo, Thomas wears sunglasses, a pointed collar, bow tie, and jacket buttoned at the waist - leaning against an old car (quite a contrast on the desert) . A third is a photo portrait with carefully combed hair. The fourth is a photo of Thomas with a leg on a fence, a cane in the one hand, with a camera on a tripod to the side. He is talking to an armed guard. There is a sign to the side that says "It is absolutely forbidden to cross this border into Afghan Territory" He has signed the piece partway between the first two photos. There is a blue ink stroke mark a few inches away from the signature. The paper is in good condition, no tears, wear, or soil. However, at the top of the text side of the brochure, there is a piece of paper glued to a portion of the edge. The promotional piece is 11" x 8", folded twice, once horizontally, once vertically. ; .; Signed by Author
