Here is the second phase of the sale you have been waiting for! Finally. It’s been a real chore to empty the attic. The attic is the same size as the house. And believe it or not it was crammed full. For those of you who came to the first sale….well. this is just as crowded!
Once again I am honored to have the privilege to work with this wonderful estate. These items have lovingly been tucked away for years and years. Now it is time to find new homes for these treasures. And treasures there are!….
There was a wide range of merchandise in the attic from marbles to furniture. A lot of Galveston Memorabilia as well.
This house was built by John Egert. He was a contractor, builder, and house raiser of the early 1900s. He was deputized right after the 1900 Hurricane. He was very instrumental in the grade raising of Galveston Island. And he was also the County Commissioner and a Mason.
We have unearthed many of Mr Egerts belongings in the attic. Most exciting of all are many cabinet card photos of the buildings Mr Egert was in the process of raising. We have paper work and even some of his tools as well as his framed portrait.
There are also several souvenir type Galveston books of early 1900. Several I have not seen before. AND wonderful early Galveston photographs of the grade-raising.! These rarely ever turn up.
Please be aware…there is dirt. Attic dirt on the items that were not wrapped. Wear gloves if you need to and the lighting is poor. We tried to add light but there are very few receptacles.
We are only allowed 100 photos on this sight. We have used all of them. So there are many items not shown. Come and see in person.
