This set of alphabet cards feature restored reproductions from a set of large sized (13x16) classroom ABC posters entitled "Black ABCs." Published in 1970 by the Society for Visual Education in Chicago, Illinois.

A quote from the back of the original cards: "The pictures are of people and situations particularly relevant to many city children and thus can make the reading readiness program in city schools more meaningful."

Dimensions: 2.5x3.5"

The cards are packaged in a clear cello envelope.

============
About the Cards
============

These cards are reproductions of a set of oversized alphabet posters I acquired when I was an elementary school teacher. It took me 5 years to find a complete set. The cards were worn and damaged when I found them. I had them scanned on a special large format scanner and restored them using Photoshop. The restoration project, done as a hobby, took another 5 years. My internet research on the images and the agency that produced them shows that the copyright expired in 1990 and I was not able to find evidence that the agency renewed the copyright. I do not claim ownership of the images but reproduce them in good faith with the understanding that the copyright has expired.

I have been attempting to bring the word ‘groovy’ back… So you can imagine how delighted I was to see that the G was groovy. Be prepared that these are a mini set . if you want them for teaching I purposes you would need to get the poster size.

Mini portable version that are about 1/2 the size of index cards of the posters that can be used for tutoring & cultural reinforcement on the go. Loving it!
