About this Item

16mo, ptd. wrps., 40pp. + 2pp. letter/price list issued separately. Entirely unto itself: a business prospectus & plan. Customers took their clothing & shoes to pawnbrokers, did not repay loans, whereupon said pawnbrokers sent merchandise to Orr & Co. for auction, for the benefit of small town transient clothing store merchants. With obvious nods to the effects of World War I on prices and marketplace supplies, whether real or imagined. The Orr firm had been around since 1879. A most curious item.
