To' all 'wlw/m a'tconcern: l
Be it known that I, Kamm G'naixoN, a citizen of the United States, resldin at in the county of Camden and tate have invented a new and useof which the followtion of a ostal card cabinet, wherein the postal car compartments are.arranged 1n horizontal and vertical rows within a suitable cabinet structure which may be stationary or rotatable, the receptacles for the cards being detachably connected to the horizontal partitions or wooden shelving, and having their front ends projecting forwardly a short distance from the outer edges of the shelving and being pro hinged covers or lids having side and botwhich are preferably hinged at their upper edges to the'top walls of the card receiving compartments so that they will drop readily into closed position by avity and the outer faces of the covers bemg rovided with a card retaining devlce so that the user can see at a glance in what compartment the desired card is located.
vBy myJnovel construction of cabinet the postal cards or other articles are `retained so as to be kept enclosed in the several compartments, so that dust and dirt cannot have access thereto, and they are readily accessible and the urchaser can see at a glance what card is esired and the vendor by lifting up the outer door or closure can instantly supply the purchaser with the desired vcard or cards.
My novel cabinet can be cheaply' constructed; is very ornamental in appearance; will not get out of order and will be found to be durable and eilicient as a container or vending device for postal cards and the like. To the above ends m invention consists of a novel construction o a postal card cabinet having card receiving compartments arranged in vertical and horizontal ali ent, wherein the compartments have thelr front edges projecting om the cabinet and are provided with a hinged, 'gravity operated lid carrying on its front surface a card conforming to the cards contained in the compartment to which said lid is attached.
My invention further 'consists of other vnovel features ,ofy construction and advantage, all as will be hereinafterfully described 'ded with Y corresponding parts.
and pointed out in the claim hereto.
For the purpose of illustrating my invention I have shown in the accompanying drawings forms thereof which yare at resent preferred by me, since they have found in practice to give satisfactory and re liable results, although it is to be understood that the various instrumentalities of which my invention consists can be variously arranged and organized and that my invention lis not limited to the precise arrangement and organization of these instrumentalities as herein shown and described.

Fig. 2 represents a vertical section on the line 2 2, Fig. 1, certain of the parts being shown in elevation.
Fig. 3 represents on an enlarged scale a view of two of the compartments seen in appended eel) Fig. 2, showing-the means for securing the card receptacles and their adjuncts in posi-A tion with the fronts of said receptacles projecting beyond the front ofthe cabinet.
Fig. 4 represents a perspective view of one of the card receptacles or card holding compartments in detached position.
Fig. 5 represents a front elevation of another embodiment of my invention, showing the cabinet mounted for rotation.
Fig. 6 represents a horizontal section on 1in@ 6-6 Fig. 5.
Fig. 7 represents a perspective view of a modification of Fig. 5.

Slmllar numerals of Yreference indicate Referring to the drawings In carrylng out my invention, I provide a suitable cabinet 1, having outer vertical side walls 2, the horizontal top wall 3 and the back 4. Between the walls 2, I arrange the horizontal and preferably wooden shelves 5 apart, greater than the height of the post cards and `within and between the pairs of shelves 5, l locatethe post card receptacles or compartments 6 which are in the form. olfa rectangular box having a top 7 andthe bottom 8, side walls 9 land the. rear 4wall 10. The lengthy of thev top, bottom and side walls 7, 8 and 9 of the cox'npartmentsv 6 is loo which are spaced vertically a distance lot ` revoluble form `at the At the point 11 of the card compartments 6, I. hinge a door or vclosure 12, so that the latter drops by gravity into closed position. front of the receptacles 6 beyond the front edges 10 of the partitions 5 I afford ample space forinani'pulating the doors 12. As a convenient means for securing to the front face of the doorv or closure 12 a card indicating the contents of the receptacle 6, I employ two thumb tacks 13, which are arranged in horizontal alignment and a bottom thumb tack 14 arranged midway between the thumb tacks 13, as will be understood from Figs. 1 andy 4, whereby a postal card 15 aduplicate of the contents of the compartmentcan be secured in position, as will be understood from Figs. 1 and 4 thus indicating the contents of each receptacle 6.
In order conveniently to illuminate the front of the cabinet so that the ,desired (postal cards can be readily seen, I provi e a standard 16 which supports the upper frame 17, from which, depends the electric light socket 18 for the electric light 19, said frame being provided with a canopy The electric wires 21 can enter'the fitting 22 top of the standard 16, and will obviously be concealed in the tubular members of the frame 17 and by this means a con- By projecting the -veniently arran ed light is `so positioned,
that the entire ront ofthe cabinet is illuminated when desired, as is evident.
In the construction seen in Figs. and 6, Ihave showi my. invention as applied to a of cabinet 23; composed of the upright side walls 24, the top 25 and the bottom 26. Between the side'walls 27 and the top and bottom walls are arranged horizontal parallelshelves 27 between which the postal card receptacles 6 already described -are arranded, as will be understood from Figs. 5 an 6,-a pair of said receptagles having their rear walls abuttin vas indicated on the line 28, said receptacles being pro` i vided with the hinged covers 12 and the card er 12 into 'the .compartments are closed and retaining devices -13 and 14, as already described an as will be understood from Fig. 5. y
It will-be seen from the foregoing that the intended purchaser of'post cards standing in front of the cabinet can instantly see at a glance what card may be desired and it is only necessary for the vendor to lift the covposition seen in dotted lines in Figs. 2 and 3, whereupon the desired number of cards are instantly accessible and can be readily removed by the vendor and handed to the urchaser. Upon releasing tlie cover 12, 'it o ,sl by gravity into closed position as seen in lines, the card d the cards there- 1n are protected from dust or dirt and rotatably mounted carried on a .suitable base ,46. Y
central tube 47 extends upwardly throughv the compartments of same shelf as will be understood in the statement of will be kept clean and fresh at all times. In order to completely close the mouth of the card receptacles 6, I preferably provide the door 12, with the bottom flange 29 and the side flanges 30, sothat'whenk the door 12 is dropped into closed position, said side and bottom flanges, effectively close the front of the receptacles 6. The card holding receptacles or compartments 6 can be secured' in position by the upper and lower fastening devices and 34, or if desired a single rear fastening devicc may be employed, which passes through the rear wall 10 into the back 4. The lower portion of the cabinet 1, can be formed with a-shelf portion 31 on which merchandise 32 can be displayed. In the construction seen in Fig. 7, I have shown my invention as installed in a r0/ tatable cabinet, 36, comprising a suitable base or pedestal, 37 upon which the cabinet body is rotatably mounted, said body comprising the base 38 and the top 39, between y which are the corner posts or uprights 40.
