Ohio mug

Earth shoes meet Juan Valdez in this souvenir mug from Ohio. The disco script type and trail of stars clearly marks this as a relic from the 70's. The back has the State bird ( cardinal), the state flower (carnation) and a sailboat ( the state boat?) illustrated on it.

Virginia Road Builders Association mug

Although the logo has a nice WPA feel, I'm guessing this coffee mug was made in the 50s or 60s. The owner of this mug was maybe more of a communal type and opted out of claiming ownership on the backside of it.
