[Ad for O.B. West Co.], The Daily Advance (Elizabeth City, N.C.), 18 November 1932

Our MISS EMMA LOU WEST will be at the fort Raleigh Hotel, Manteo, with our New and Beautiful Line of children's Wear, from tots to Teens MONDAY, NOVEMBER 21.

WE ARE SURE that Orville Wright looked like this when he was a baby...

AND WE ARE SURE that he wanted the lovely things we have at our baby store for little boys, and our girl's line is absolutely beyond compare.
