Don't Miss the Ads. I have separated out 60 block ads to use as illustrations on the various pages of this directory as they are processed. By showing us the goods and services that were available a century ago, they tell us as much about lifestyle and culture as anything can. Take off your surname blinders and enjoy the scenery of 1891 Elmira. Just be careful not to step in anything.
