A private party purchased the property in mid 1960's. There were many shoes, some in singles which were store samples to try on and then orders were placed for the required size, color and style. The shoes have been in storage since the property was closed 1950's. A few are in pristine condition, some are soiled and damaged from storage. I have provided the dimensions of the shoes, there are no current day sizes to reference. These are wonderful artifacts from bygone days suitable for display. Based upon the information I received the shoes are c1905-1920, but some could possibly be slightly newer.Look carefully at the photos before offerding, and if you have any questions about the item(s) please email me.
