F.W. Cox Store


The ad above was found in the Bridgeport Leader Sept 20, 1920.  The F. W. Cox store in Bridgeport sold dry goods, boots, shoes, and groceries.  A coupon also found said that  a flour bin and sifter would be given to all patrons when their cash purchases amounted to $25.00.  The other picture is a cover of a school paper pad.

Be sure and look for our exhibit case filled with Bridgeport items of the era, during the Smithsonian Exhibit.
