There are most assuredly two different ads here - and a funny story how I know for sure. I looked up the company in the back of my Mom's old high school yearbook, and found a picture down Franklin St. showing this building. All you could see was "Cush & L" and the words below. She recalled there was a "Cush & Lambka" clothing store somewhere downtown, and sure enough- a little research at the public library led me to that. It says "apparel for men and boys" below. The sign peeking through the top looks like "Miller Bros". Further investigation revealed a "Miller Brothers" furniture store in the same building in 1921. I didn't have the time to research that one any further to see how long they'd been there, or what was originally in the building. -SH
