Neat folded cardstock piece printed on the occasion of the January 1925 eclipse. It originally contained a pair of colored glasses, but those are not present, probably having been used during the eclipse.
Once in your lifetime. Eclipse of the Sun, Boston, Mass., January 24, 1925
The right pane has slits which were meant to hold the glasses in place.

How dark will Boston be? Not even the astronomers know.
When was the last such eclipse darkening Boston?
1806 (Bowditch records.)
When will the next visit us? In 1932.
The shadow seen January 24 will move slowly from the upper right to the lower left of the Sun's disc.
