Crawford Department Store
The North Town News often printed "news" items about the store. In the Wednesday, March 7, 1951, edition, Crawford announced that Mrs. Alline Winter had graduated, with the highest grades, from the Gossard School of Corsetry. The store proudly announce, "This brings the number of graduate corsettiers at Crawford's to six." An equally exciting item appeared on Wednesday, April 11, 1951, when it was announced that, The soft strains of Muzak melodies will waft through the local store...Neighbors can shop with the added charm of a musical background."
