1922 Dodge Business Sedan
Advertised in the October 21' 1922 Country Gentleman magazine, the drawing shows better than words how the front seat tilts forward.
1906 Drug Ads
Recently I found a copy The West Milton (Ohio) Record for October 31, 1906.
American-made ciro-flex
Advertised in the March 1943 Popular Photography, the ciro-flex was cheaper than the twin-lens Rolleicord which it resembled.

Busch Pressman
The Busch Pressman was competition for the Speed Graphic, without the focal plane shutter or an optical viewfinder, but about half the price as advertised in the March 1943 Popular Photography. As I recall, the quality wasn't as high as the Grafles-made press cameras, but it was fairly popular. The camera pictured has a Compur shutter.

Does any Flickr viewer remember it or have one?

4. How Ya Gonna Keep 'Em Down On The Farm? (Lewis/Young/Donaldson) sheet music

How ya gonna keep 'em down on the farm
After they've seen Paree'
How ya gonna keep 'em away from Broadway
Jazzin around and paintin' the town
How ya gonna keep 'em away from harm, that's a mystery
They'll never want to see a rake or plow
And who the deuce can parleyvous a cow?
How ya gonna keep 'em down on the farm
After they've seen Paree'
