San Francisco Souvenir Decals (1950s)

Strip of 9 unused water-dip decals from San Francisco, California, each decal measuring 1-3/4". These are water-dip slide decals; just dip them in water for about 30 seconds, then slide them onto an suitable object. The are fragile, but seem to work if you cut and use them one at a time. These were utilized by a souvenir distributor on mugs, ashtrays, and other small mementos in the 1950s. (Click on the photo for a larger view.)
