Reference: The sign was researched [not completed] a decade ago however the file and substantiating photograph was lost. The Boston chapter opened a store in Salem...this is the storefront sign that was cantilevered from the building. The store was closed during the Great Depression. Fast forward: the sign was part of the 30-year private collection of Lynne and Paul Weaver which was sold in July of 2013 by Hap Moore Antiques Auctions. The sign was purchased by New Hampshire collectors who recently consigned to AAAWT.
