This fan shows an obvious art deco influence, and possibly dates from the 20's. It is another "self" handled fan, older than those with applied handles. Sadly, this one does not credit the artist. It is simply titled No. 229 - Mother's Delight. I love the look on the baby's face as she beholds her image. Looks like the baby is delighted too. The reverse advertises Dauby's Department Store in Tell City, Indiana. Tell City is in southern Indiana, on the Ohio River. I wonder if Dauby's still exists? A Google search shows several listings for Dauby's, but does not mention if the store is in operation. Maybe one of you will know.
The only shoe brand I recognize is Poll-Parrot Shoes for Boys and Girls. They were being sold when I was a child. I probably wore some of them, but the brand I remember most is Buster Brown. Buster Brown was a cartoon, and eventually became a radio show on Saturdays. There was a character named "Froggy" and Buster was always saying "Pluck your magic twanger, Froggy", and they would instantly go off into another world, or something, I cannot remember exactly what the magic twanger did. Do you remember, Hoss? I do know I always wanted a magic twanger - and still do!
