page 181 -- H. A. Clark's Cash Boot and Shoe Store

updated 27 February 2016
<PREVIOUS PAGE      ~ index ~       NEXT PAGE>

As of this writing, I haven't been able to find much on the H.A. Clark's Cash Boot and Shoe Store in Bristol. It may have been a branch operation of the H.A. Clark's in Palmer, MA, which issued cards of its own:

Evidently H.A. Clark's did not manufacture footwear, but rather was a retail outlet that sold shoes and boots made by others.

M.A. Packard had a presence in Brockton MA and also had a Boston office, as per this downloadable (copyright expired) reference from archiv.org:

Recollections of sixty years in the shoe trade
Published c1916
page 115 (of 232)


The Vintage Shoe Archive displays a sample ad for Packard Shoes.

So far no information has been retrieved for this card.
It may have been a stock sample, to be customized later with a merchant's stamp.
Please post a comment below if you know anything about this beautiful card. Thanks!
