Southern Credit Jewelers Ad (circa 1942)

A unique radio advertisement for a downtown business located around Market Square. This was recorded off a local radio station by an early home disc recorder. Surviving regional ads such as this are rare to come by, as most went out live and were not captured on any format for posterity.
