I love this type of Ephemera. It really does give an insight into the Bulovas past. I've spent some time delving into the history of this family and it's fascinating. Look up the address on that certificate if you want to see the building the Bulova's lived in....VERY swanky address. Thanks for sharing this Stephen.

Is it the Rockefella Center?

The building is part of Rockefeller Plaza. Rockefeller Center is across the street. Pretty swanky digs.Arde and his wife Ileana lived at 759 Fifth Ave, the cheapest apartment in the "Pierre" as it's known today, is a two bedroom at 4 million. A five bedroom is currently on offer at 57 million.

Sounds like Emily was slumming it then :-)

Pretty impressive residences.

I just snagged one too - this one is from 1960. Also owned by Emily and signed by her son Harry B Henshel.

Outstanding! When you have the chance have a close look at the detail in the green fibrous print.
