More Early Worman Brochures

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, Features • TAGS: , .

I stumbled upon some more Worman brochures in my archives. I’d meant to include these in my Dispatcher article, but my not so organized organizational methods thwarted my best intentions. These are from either 1947 or 1948. It’s possible that these tops still exist, but are easily mistaken for the later Sears tops (at least, i could have easily made the mistake).
