Furs for Women's in 1930ce


I bought this small group of pamphlets on fur coats some years ago.  They are all from stores in San Francisco and Oakland and all appear to have been picked up by someone planning to buy a fur coat in the winter of 1930, who was a careful shopper, looking around for the best bargain in the Bay Area.  She was likely an Oakland/Berkeley woman who had charge accounts at Capwell’s and The Emporium since two of the leaflets were the kind only sent to charge customers.
