Catalog Record | Enlarge Image | Adopt a Book Home

This small handbill is actually the directions sheet that would come with the specialty clothes line being promoted. Made in Worcester, a city famous for its wire industry, this clothes line claimed to hold wet garments securely using just strategically placed links and overall tension on the line. The elephants were not included with purchase.
