is a quote from TIME Magazine, dated Mar. 15, 1937: "Despite President Roosevelt, t was evidence last week that the U. S. is returning to horse & buggy days. In Huntingburg, Ind., President Herman Heitman of Huntingburg Wagon Works, the largest in the U. S., announced: "The depression didn't effect us in the least and today we are expanding. Present trends indicate a decided increase in business for 1937." "Buggyman Heitman has 80 men working six days and three nights a week. Last year they turned out 9,000 wagons and 3,000 buggies by hand."
T are nine pages of wagons & buggies plus two pages of wagon & buggy prices, dated December 15, 1958.
These pages would look very nice cut up, framed, and put in a den, bar, or game room. Several of the pages have acquired brownish aging spots, however, these brochures are in great condition, with no rips, tears, or writing.
T is no hidden reserve on this item, all transactions will receive feedback and thank you very much for looking.
