Snapshot: Buster Brown

An advertisement for Buster Brown Shoes once available for purchase at the Stephens Store in Creston, North Carolina. The Buster Brown company advertised in a variety of ways locally within Appalachia, including the sponsorship of regional events such as the 1925 Mountain City Fiddlers Convention. The company also installed X-Ray machines in some retail locations to help children and adults determine the proper shoesize.
