Treasure Chest Thursday – Helen Karpuk’s Eyeglasses
December 1st, 2011 by Jessica

In an effort to document my family treasures which cannot be scanned in, I am publishing this series of pictures as part of the Treasure Chest Thursday theme at Geneabloggers.  Someday in the future, I hope to shed some light on these treasures for my family who might inherit them.  What were they for?  Who did they come from? Why were they considered treasures?  Let’s find out.

Helen Karpuk's Glasses

Helen Karpuk's Glasses

This week’s treasure is courtesy of my Aunt Helen Geneviere (Karpuk) Thompson.  These were her childhood eyeglasses from the mid-1930s.  They were given to my mother Diane when her sister Helen passed away in 1994 while the family was cleaning out her house.

The gold colored metal plate which is glued inside the velvet liner reads:

G. E. TIEDKE M.D.
EYE.EAR.NOSE.THROAT
312 GRAEBNER BLDG.
SAGINAW W.S. MICH.

The pink cloth is also original to this case, and is stamped with the same doctor’s practice information.
