A Good Thing From Doe-Wah-Jack
The front cover has a wraparound drawing of a brick wall with shrubs behind the title on the front cover. "Do-Wah-Jack" is in yellow letters outlined in black. On the back cover, a man on a horse is looking at a green sign on a store: "See the name on the leg. Round Oak Heating Stoves Sold Here." At the bottom is "Well! Well! 1895 and the Round Oak still in the lead" in red lettering. The title page has black-and-white photographs of P.D. Beckwith, Inventor of the Famous Round Oak Heating Stove, and Fred E. Lee, General Manager, with the company name in an elaborate light brown drawing. At the bottom is a banner with "See the Name on the Leg." The text of the pamphlet tells about the design and construction of the stove with drawings of several models and parts. The centerfold has color drawings of two women cleaning stoves -- one "The common way, you've all been there," and the happier one, "Our cleanly way." There are no page numbers.
