Once again, I have taken a look at The Advances from 75 years ago. I have chosen two articles and an ad for you this week.
The article I have chosen is the Beach Comberâ€™s Column. I donâ€™t know who wrote these columns, nor do staff at the museum however, the writer nearly always seems spot on. This time is no different. Read on his/her opinions on Christmas spirit.
The next is some news from Port Mouton. I chose the article because there are some familiar surnames that are still in the area and I thought perhaps locals may enjoy hearing what their grandparents and great grandparents were doing. Iâ€™m very curious about this show with Flapper Fanny and the Verge brothers!
Last but not least is an ad that caught my eye. A store called S.R. Forbes in Brooklyn boasts that they have gifts for all. My question here is why are toilet sets at the top of the list? Were these a new item? Is a set a seat or a seat cover? But also, why is this a highlighted item? The other items seem pretty normal: candy, ornaments, chocolate.
Do you remember this store? Or do you remember Flapper Fanny? Email me at Brittany.firstname.lastname@example.org or phone the Advance at 354-3441
