Shoe Stretcher

Fulton Journal: June 6, 1902

In looking over the list of patents granted for new and notable inventions in the Scientific Amnerican for May 31, we noticed No.700,705 was issued to C.L. Passmore of Fulton, Illinois, for a shoe stretcher. This handy and practical tool is a long ways in advance of the "Lightning Shoe Stretcher" patented by Mr. Passmore a few years ago, and of which over 100,000 were sold.
