NOSTALGIA PT. II
Click HERE to enlarge.
Here's another ad photo my father took in the late 1940s: "Murdock's of Bloomville, NY; Exclusive distributors of Wilson Freezers. Where quality tells and service sells. Open evenings & Saturdays for your convenience."
What's amusing, to me at least, is the fact that this tiny farming community in Delaware County, NY, sold freezers back in the 1940s. In fact, the store appears to have specialized in freezers -- in Bloomville, NY? I used to live near there and believe me, to this day it's so small that it's not listed of most maps.
Notice what the people are wearing. I'd forgotten that people used to dress to leave the house. Women and girls wore dresses/skirts and men wore suits and hats.
