Springfield Daily News Classifieds, 1938

These scans of a page of classified advertisements from the February 23, 1938, issue of the Springfield Daily News stand today as a type-set footprint in the mud of the past. True to today's classifieds, there is something for everyone...

As always, thanks for stopping by and take care.

Wow, how incredibly sexist some of those are! And ageist, too. Pretty eye-popping.

Thanks Mark. Brought back memories of Reopell, Ralph Jones, and Kelleher Mixer, all places I had forgotten about. Love the Rent prices too. I noticed many ads did not have Phone Numbers listed, as many did not yet have a phone except for the businesses.
