CYRUS: Classified Ads from 60 years ago make interesting reading
Post-war auto parts were scarce in Columbia, but Western Auto mechanics were making every effort to repair vehicles with what they had
The classified ads in the April 24, 1946 edition of the Adair County News make for some interesting reading. Opportunities, services, and offers of reward abounded, as shown in the entries below.
It surely would be interesting to know who rented Mr. McKinney's garden & how much they paid; if anyone ever claimed Mr. Yates' liberal reward; who bought Mr. Heskamp's building; and how many folks heeded the plea from the Willis Pressing Shop!
Central Ohio Bureau Chief
