Excerpt:
“Distinguished Shoes. Not only because of the great beauty and originality of their designs, their unequalled workmanship and the use of ‘seasoned’ leathers, but because they reflect the soul of an ancient country. Bruges in Flanders (Northern Belgium) has the respect for fine craftsmanship that the rest of the world has for the cultural arts…plus a pure faith in peace and in good things.”

This is a 82 yr. old original vintage ad removed from a 1938 publication and is not a reproduction of any kind.
