Pres. Poca

Owners J. Hamed and his brother, standing in front of J. Hamed and Brother General Store on Main Street in Marlinton, W.Va. in 1912. A large sign over the entrance announces the “greatest money and reducing sale ever held in Marliton.” Try to find two other misspelled words on the hand-painted sign. You’ll spot two signs advertising Selz Shoes, from Chicago, and their logo “Make Your Feet Glad.” Courtesy of Pocahontas County Historical Society, ID: PHS000874
