Trade card – Lovering’s Shoes


Top of the card, “Every Man Rides His Own Hobby” with a W.H. Vanderbilt caricature riding the N.Y.C. railroad line.


“Our hobby is Fine Hand Sewed Shoes, Lovering’s One-Price Shoe House.”


In 1886, the St. Paul Daily Globe newspaper in St. Paul, MN, carried this short piece: “Lovering, the Shoe Man, has reached the point where he controls the largest retail shoe trade in the Northwest, it being done solely by selling good, reliable goods at reasonable prices. Mr. Lovering came from Boston to this city five years ago, and by his long experience and close attention to his business, has obtained the confidence of the people; he also enjoys the reputation of being the ‘only live shoe’ merchant in the city of St. Paul….He uses the very best material in all his goods; he uses the best advertising means and appliances; he employs the best skilled workmen and clerks.”


William Henry Vanderbilt died in 1885.


We are assuming this card came out in the late 1880s.


Condition: Very good. Back is blank.

Size 3.00 x 5.00 inches.
