Sleighs! Sleighs! Sleighs!

For the fun of contrast to the previous Congdon's "shiny things" Christmas ad, here's an ole-timey 1887 Ypsilantian newspaper ad offering pure-D Norman Rockwellesque nostalgia, to which Dusty D is not immune.

Ah, for the days when a simple, healthy outdoor wooden toy was The Thing. Plus, it's "strong enough got the big boys and fancy enough for the small ones." Join Dusty D in stopping by Alban and Johnson's today over on Congress, maybe during your lunch hour, and making a cash purchase of a boy's overcoat. Bingo--there's your Beautiful Sleigh. See you there.
