The labels on all four aprons say The Halle Bros. Co. After doing some research on the Internet, I was able to determine that these aprons were marketed by a series of department stores with the same name that was located in Cleveland, Ohio from 1891 - 1982. An interesting tidbit of information is that it's flagship store building was used in the 1990's as the main location of the fictional Winfred-Louder store on ABC's "The Drew Carey Show". I suspect that Mr. Carey wouldn't have a clue, nor an interest in aprons such as these!

  1. I remember shopping in Halle's when I was a young girl....with my mum, grandmother and aunt. It was a very nice store.
