Well I posted the shoe pocket knife, so here is the shoe button hook to go along with it. This was my great grand mother's ( born 1887). Nobody else wanted it so it was passed along to me. It is marked Barney's Good Shoes.
I assume they probably gave you a hook when you purchased a pair of shoes. Has anyone ever heard of Barney's shoes?
As a funny side note, I once asked my great grandmother what the greatest invention or event was that she had witnessed in her lifetime. She was in her 80's then. (This was for a high school report) She didn't even hesitate to think, she replied "Toilet Paper".
