Old Newspaper Advertisements

The old advertisements in the Crittenden Press are fun to read.  They can be very informative.  As I look for other news worthy items in the old papers, I always have to take time to check out the ads.  These ads came from the Aug. 16, 1906 Crittenden Press.

R. F. Dorr, the funeral director and embalmer, has just received the finest funeral car ever shipped into this section.  It cost $1000 and is a beauty and a credit to Marion.  

It would look well on Broadway, N. Y. and proves that the old reliable undertaker and funeral director is keeping a pace of the time and is prepared to do work contracted to him in the best of style.

The community of View, Ky. which is in the next ad, was a small community west of Crayne, Ky.  There is nothing there today that would let anyone know that there was once a village located here.

At View, Ky. for the year 1907, one dwelling house, one store house, blacksmith shop and stock scales.  Will rent separately or all tegether.  Good stand for store and shop; for farther information wrte me at View, Ky.

I also have seven Jersey cows and young calves for sale , they are full bloods and all in good shape and giving lots of good rich milk.  Will sell cheap rather than winter them.
