Marston co San Diego Ca
A little piece of history!
I believe this is very fine linen and is an off white with blue and yellow checks
Very good condition for its age - I found an age spot which i show in the pictures.
Unlikely you will ever fins another one like this!
George Marston (1850-1946) was one of the great community servants in the history of San Diego.The Marston Company ultimately became San Diego's leading department store.
"Marston's," as it was usually called, became such a popular and well-loved institution in San Diego that, although the store itself is no longer in existence, a group of former employees, the "Marstonites," still hold celebration meetings.
The Marston department store, at 5th Avenue and C Street, was owned by the family until they sold it in 1961 to The Broadway Stores. It has since closed. ***now open, FeliceKitchen - Italian biscotti with a taste of the unexpected - http://felicekitchen.etsy.com *****
