An educational tool pairing that spans a century!

Offered are two school slates, both designed to support children's learning, either while in school or at home.

A really unusually nice signed photo from the Harry Potter phenomenon, of star actor Daniel Radcliffe, on an iconic image of him with crossed arms. The photo is hand inscribed in silver marker: "Thank you! Daniel Radcliffe AS Harry Potter". No date. There are many autographed photos of him on the market but on many the signature is only very rapidly scrawled, and the photo is not as simple, direct, and classic. This example is a keeper.

A decorative original poster from the Preservation Hall Jazz Band of New Orleans, Louisiana, measuring 36" by 24" as framed in black strip behind thin Plexi (making for easy and safe shipping).
