Rountree's Leather Shop - December 18th, 1910

100 years and two days ago--December 18th, 1910--this amazing full-page ad from Rountree's Leather Shop ran in the Times-Dispatch. Rountree's occupied part of the block on Broad Street where the new federal courthouse building now resides.

  1. Hi Jon.

    Is this the same Rountrees that is now located in the West End?

  2. Thanks Charlie....I guess they are the same. I've passed by that current store on Broad Street hundreds of times, but never made the connection til I saw your comment.
