  1. That Bostonia cigar building belonged to my maternal grandfather, Francis X. Oberle who opened this location in 1876 when he immigrated from Sasbach, Germany. I still have several cigar boxes and other paraphernalia from the Bostonia Cigar Company.
    How would I go about obtaining copies of these pictures and/or especially calendars that you have on file. Thank you very much for any help you can give me as I would like to have them for gifts to my relatives. If this is possible then please let me know the cost.

  2. wow David! Thanks for the historical background. I can sell you digital prints if you would like. Calendars are a great idea. There is a German publisher who is tentatively doing a calendar of my work, but not these images per se. I will email you for further info.

    Best,
    Frank

  3. Frank,
    Thanks for the reply. Would appreciate the information that you mentioned. Probably 16 calendars. I know thats not much but willing to accommodate for the cost if fairly reasonable. Really Interested.

    Thanks again,

    Dave

  4. Frank,

    Sorry – $40 per is out of my league. I’m sure the price you quoted is worth it with all the work involved but thought the cost would be a lot less. Thanks anyway for your help.
