Identification Card (Approved)
Good to know that this is an “Approved”
identification card. Or is it the bearer of the card who has been approved? And
"card" is a stretch. These inserts are printed on some of the flimsiest paper
I've ever encountered, several notches below newsprint. In the vital stats
section: Blood type. Good thinking, I guess. Notice how the “Zip” is in a
slightly different typeface? Looks like Helvetica regular as opposed to the
condensed sans-serif used for the address blanks. (Typographers: In the
condensed font, I notice that the a, y, and r have distinctively curved
elements. Is this maybe the special font that Bell developed for phone books,
designed to be legible at extremely small sizes? ) The addition of the "Zip"
later on indicates that the original design of the insert dates from the
pre-zip-code era, that is, before the early 1960s, but that the wallet itself is
newer than that. Basic standards of tomfoolery would of course require one to
write in “Federal Bureau of Investigation” in the “Employed by” blank. Maybe not
the best idea nowadays to just give out your SSN to the random stranger who
finds your wallet.
I have been through all my flower
identification books but am unable to identify this lovely purple flower. If you
know its species please let me know. Thanks! :-D Have a great weekend!
