Red Cross Shoe Week

It’s Red Cross Shoe Week…if we were transported back to 1941! April 21-26, 1941 was National Red Cross Shoe Week, which was 75 years ago.

This particular card was advertising on the back for John Conners Shoe Store in Bangor, Maine. John Conners dates back to at least 1897, when an advertisement was featured in a Holden, Maine town report. The store is no longer there today.

“But officer, it’s National Red Cross Shoe Week and I just couldn’t wait to see the gorgeous new Red Cross Shoes for dress, sport, walking.”
