The North Carolina Collection is a treasure trove of interesting and fun items (as well as an excellent research library–if we do say so ourselves). As a way of sharing some of these items, we are starting a “Where The Heel?” contest. Inspired by a similar feature in a 1937 issue of The State magazine (now Our State), every so often we’ll post a blog entry asking you, our readers, if you can identify a certain town. Though The State offered their winners a $10 prize (during the Great Depression, no less!), we can only promise you glory and honor.
To get things started, can you identify this city (ca. 1930-1945)? Leave a comment, and watch for us to comment back once we have a winner.
