The wearer of these shoes had one foot that required a shoe about 1 inch longer than the other. As you can see they saw almost not use and match perfectly in color and condition. The only real difference is the metal toe plate on one and not the other. $575  $SOLD$

E-2259  Extremely Rare Flour Sack sent to Belgium by Herbert Hoover's (C.R.B.) The Committee for the Relief of Belgium. Thousands of these sacks of flour were sent to Belgium between 1914 and 1917 in the World's Largest humanitarian crisis. The German government and troops occupying Belgium did not have enough food to keep running, so they confiscated Belgian crops and foodstuffs. The problem was that Belgium only grew about 75% of the food it needed before the War. Now with the occupation, and naval blockade, imports went to zero. 11 Million people were threatened with starvation. Hoover began extensive organizing, fund raising and collection of tons of donated flour from all over the country. This was then consolidated and shipped overseas. Through skillful negotiations with the Germans and British, they were able to get permission to cross the seas and deliver needed materials. These were then distributed all over Belgium and baked into bread, which was then distributed to the starving population. Each bag has the acceptance stamp of the "Comitee Provincial de Secours et D'alimintation". It is also marked in the center to the district of Brabant which is a French speaking province near Brussels. This sack was donated by the Chamber of Commerce of Los Angeles and so marked. Extremely rare item of American Relief Efforts prior to the American declaration of War!! $145

E-1935     Extremely Rare Flour Sack sent to Belgium by Herbert Hoover's (C.R.B.) The Committee for the Relief of Belgium. Thousands of these sacks of flour were sent to Belgium between 1914 and 1917 in the World's Largest humanitarian crisis. The German government and troops occupying Belgium did not have enough food to keep running, so they confiscated Belgian crops and foodstuffs. The problem was that Belgium only grew about 75% of the food it needed before the War. Now with the occupation, and naval blockade, imports went to zero. 11 Million people were threatened with starvation. Hoover began extensive organizing, fund raising and collection of tons of donated flour from all over the country. This was then consolidated and shipped overseas. Through skillful negotiations with the Germans and British, they were able to get permission to cross the seas and deliver needed materials. These were then distributed all over Belgium and baked into bread, which was then distributed to the starving population. Each bag has the acceptance stamp of the "Comitee Provincial de Secours et D'alimintation". It is also marked in the center to the district of Brabant which is a French speaking province near Brussels. Extremely rare item of American Relief Efforts prior to the American declaration of War!! $175
