The Ushers Astrological Forecast-1941-Orange & Blue Printed cove

This is a copy of The Ushers Astrological Forecast, for 1942. Orange and blue cover is copyright 1940. It is filled with advice and astrological information for each month. Whoever received this copy in the 1940s, made some pencil notations on many pages.

The Ushers had a very successful career in vaudville. When they retired to Venice, California, in 1935, they ran a very successful Astrology business for 15 years. The amount of hundreds of the three different metal tokens, and the surviving charts, will give some idea of how successful they were.
