What’s ephemera you ask? Well one of the official definitions is ‘paper items (such as posters, broadsides, and tickets) that were originally meant to be discarded after use but have since become collectibles’ (from Miriam Webster). At first glance that may seem to refer to only a few items but, according to the Ephemera Society of America, the Encyclopedia of Ephemera lists 500 categories of ephemera. Vintage ephemera can provide details of your ancestor’s life, even vital record information, or a specific place and time for them.

1917 halftone print of a woman working side-by-side with a man to help construct wartime supplies at the Glasgow boiler factory
September 14, 2012
"Many thanks, the 1917 Rosie the Riveter print arrived safely yesterday.  Thanks also for the particular attention given to packaging and the accompanying information.  Best service I’ve ever had from an Ebay supplier.As for use, well I’m trying to put together a book on UK Boilermakers.  Rather than just reproduce photos/illustrations from their catalogues, of which I have quite a collection, I’ll use prints such as ‘Rosie’ to give the book some wider interest.  I have a small collection of postcards of views inside factories, transportation and guys stocking boilers, so your contribution is much appreciated.It was quite unexpected, and lucky, to get an illustration of a Glasgow boilermaker (probably William Wilson) from a US journal.
Thanks and Regards, Paul.”
