Friday, October 15, 1926

No diary entry today, so we'll continue with Aunt Marjorie's memories of the 1930's.

Regarding Grandma selling irons... "they (the irons) were so heavy, she switched to selling a book called "Volume Library" door to door. That made her feet hurt so badly!"

I assume Grandma sold the irons door to door, too. Times have sure changed. Does anyone try to sell anything (other than religion) door to door?

  1. Back then I think there were more door-to-door salesmen, selling all kinds of stuff. Don't forget the milk man, the ice man & the bread man. Plus farmers who drove around with their fruits & vegetables, the Watson man with his spices, & the Fuller brush man, & many others. Today hardly anyone trys to sell door-to-door besides the girl scouts & their cookies, and other fund raisers
