    I am really curious about this cardboard counter top advertisement. Fairly large 28 inches tall counter top because the back has foldout cardboard legs like on a picture frame. I would have to think that being cardboard would mean that lest likely to last as long as this one has. I like the "post war" reference as well.

    I also have a virtually new pair of Key Imperial overalls.

      Per Kansapedia:
      Founded in 1908 as Lakin McKey Manufacturing, the name was shortened to Key in 1938 when Kenneth Pollock purchased the company. Pollock was originally from Wisconsin, where his father started another overalls company, Oshkosh B'Gosh. ...
