Next up: Some really awesome images from a 1943 issue of the "Diamond." This was a magazine published by Mid-Continent, intended for employees and distributors. This particular wartime issue is completely patriotic from cover to cover. War bond ads, stories of employees serving the country at war, and writeups on their families at home. I've scanned a few tiny samples of this issue, as Maurice Campbell has generously sent it to me to share with all of you.

First up, here is a picture from the rear cover:

And a couple photos with captions from some articles inside:

It's rather refreshing to see true patriotism expressed in a publication like this. Shamefully, love and support of one's country seems to be almost looked down upon in recent years.
