USS Salem Pennant Brought Back to Salem!

I recently got this from eBay! It's obviously a pennant of the USS Salem. I'm not sure just which USS Salem it's from. There were three different USS Salem ships. The first is from early 1900's and was hull no. CL-3, second was from WWII number CM-11 and last was the CA-139 from the 1950's which is a ship museum in Quincy, Mass. If you can help date this pennant, post something in the comments section of this post.

New Commemorative Button

This is a button from the 50th anniversary of Ste. Anne Catholic Church. It's interesting because it features a photograph of what the church used to look like. As some might not know the structure depicted on the button burned down in 1982. This button mas made in 1951 by a novelty company from Boston.
