A Very Early Hundred Year Old Daybill Display

Daybills plastered on a Port Macquarie N.S.W. Australia building circa 1918. Close up images of the posters isn't great, but I was able to make out three of the poster titles. One is I believe is to to be the first image sighted of a serial film. Following are the best images of three of the films that I have been able to identify and to locate U.S.A. material for these rare titles, just to give you an idea on some details regarding the films.

The Make-Believe Wife ( 1918 ) starring Billie Burke who we all know and fondly remember as playing Glinda in The Wizard Of Oz ( 1939 ).

The Mystery Girl ( 1918 ) and The Silent Mystery ( 1918 ) a very early serial from the first decade of serials.

British Quad which has been folded just the right amount of times and shoved under one of the corners to stop the place from wobbling.
