Vintage String Packages

Ukulelia University Adjunct Professor of String Theory and Fretboard Journal editor Michael Simmons pointed us to this online photo gallery of vintage string packages, several of which are for ukuleles. Some wonderful graphics here. I especially like this circa 1935 George Formby banjolele string package. The illo looks very much like R. Crumb's handiwork. Link

I've been looking for some Bostonia
strings to give me that New England
uke sound that I love so much, Gary.
At least I know what they look like now.
