Enjoy the Christmas Gift of Historical Knowledge

Merry Christmas Forest County Residents!

Today I found a few advertisements from the December 1939 Forest Republican newspaper trying to get county residents to spend their Christmas dollars at the local establishments. Many of the gifts for women have not changed over the years such as: perfume or manicure sets. But the majority of the gifts for males features some kind of tobacco product like cigars, pipes, cigarettes, or just plain tobacco. One thing that hasn’t changed is the bombardment of advertisements from stores around the holiday season!
