Thursday, October 26, 1933

Daddy took me to school today. It was raining. I walked home with Ruth. I got my nightstand.

store in Kansas City, Mo.,
Raymond-Green Furniture Co.
1017 E. 12th Street
Kansas City, MO

Actual text of classified ad for Raymond-Green: "Only 5 doors from Troost. Big dressers $8.
 A bed, spring and mattress, $7.20. 6 foot extension tables, $2.50. Dictate your own terms.
Raymond-Green Furniture Co. 1017 East 12th."

The store moved to a downtown location at 1312 Grand in 1928. But with sales in 1933 dropping
 to approximately half of those in 1931 and the end of the depression not yet in sight, it was just a
matter of time until the store was forced to close. It did so in early 1934.
