Squint Shot 042612

I did a little shopping on eBay and won the bid for a rather odd postcard.

The C.D. Hamilton store was located at the corner of East Grand River and South Grand, where many will remember Ruth's Resale.  In 1969, the C.D. Hamilton store closed.

But for many, many years before that, this dry goods store was a busy, bustling, popular location for linens, towels, shoes, clothing, fabric, pretty much everything, including draperies.  Following is the postcard promoting these "ready to hang" lace curtains.
