Unfortunately, neither the dates, nor the names of the papers these were torn from, were recorded, though perhaps the shoe ad will provide someone with a clue (and don't I wish we could still buy shoes for that price! :::grin:::). We do know the clippings are a minimum of 60+ years old, since my dad stored them away back in 1935/6 in a box of letters. We assume these were friends of his, since we don't yet know of them as being relatives.
