(4 3/4 x 6 1/4 In) This is an original vintage International Shoe Company, Sundial Shoes booklet from the 1930s. "Shoes Thru the Ages" is 36-pages long and full of illustrations of shoes through out time.
"The Story of FOOTWEAR - Did you know that shows have been used as medicine? As money? As food? It's true . . . and those are only a few of the many interesting things you'll find out about shoes as we trace the progress of "Shoes Through the Ages". Shoes didn't "just happen" you know. They started as a very rough idea and changed and improved continually until today the shoes you wear aren't anything like those worn ages ago. In fact, they're even different from shoes worn today in other parts of the world. To give you some of the facts from the strange history of shoes, the Educational Department of the International Shoe Company, world's largest shoemakers, has prepared this booklet. We think you'll find it amusing, interesting and educational. - INTERNATIONAL SHOE COMPANY - St. Louis, Mo.", reads the introduction.
