Golden Gate Chain Recirculating Club. US, 1935.
Caption - typed
and pasted on back:
you get $10 -- maybe, if, as and when
the public store chain letter craze hits San Francisco,
Calif., where the "Golden Gate Chain Recirculating Club"
opened quarters. Officers of the "club" offered a re-
turn of $10 on a $1.50 investment but admitted it
would last only "as long as the crowd holds out." They
explained that fifty cents of the $1.50 went to maintain
the club and the remaining dollar is placed in an en-
velope with the donor's name. Police were watching
their operations. PHOTO SHOWS- A part of the crowd
lined up at the opening.
