Advertisement from the March 17, 1921 Skidmore News for Wayman McGinness’ meat market.

From the March 22, 1923 Skidmore News (Skidmore, Missouri), page 1:

Still Making Improvements.

Wayman McGinness is still making improvements in his butcher shop. Last Monday he installed a new refrigerator which he purchased from the Kansas City Refrigerator Co. It is called the “Howden Freezer,” and is manufactured by the above named firm, of which Fred W. Howden is the president, and Elmer Howden is salesman.

The freezer has a glass front and top, allowing all the meat in it to be seen. It will keep the meat much longer and in better shape than the old one and will not take near the amount of ice to keep the temperature at a low degree.

Text of advertisement reads, “House cleaning time coming on and this means hard work, and hard work means more eats. Come in and let us figure with you on your meats and groceries. Morrell’s Ham, sliced, per pound, $0.43. Whole ham, per pound, $0.33. Morrell’s Iowa Pride Bacon, side, per pound, $0.49. Sliced, per pound, $0.53. Box bacon, per pound, $0.55. Dixie Squares, per pound, $0.24. Other meats priced accordingly. Pay cash and save money. Wayman McGinness.”
