  2. Oh, my. Babies wrapped in cellophane. Those were the days!

    I wore those Buster Browns, both the Oxford style on the bottom left and the black patent leather on the bottom right. Wore them until my toes were about to grow through the ends.

    Yes, those were the days.

      I would still take the grown-up version of the ankle-strap ones at the upper right!

      (FTR, I was never allowed Buster Brown. It was Stride Rite or nothing. I was so jealous of all the kids who had Buster and Tige living in their shoes!)

    Well, at least 1/3 of those are Socially Unacceptable, if not downright RAAAAAAACIST!
    A lot of chuckles reading some of those again.
    That means I’m OLD.

  7. I just love old ads. It will give today’s parents shivers to see cellophane used around babies. Until the new type of plastic coating was used on the patent leather, the old stuff was beautiful until it started to crack and flake off. Nicotine really had many more people in its grasp. 🙂 — Suzanne
