The frames need some reglueing but that's nothing. The wood boards or slip-seat bases are perfectly good - only 1 reupholstery job over the years. The old picture is from Minnesota History Center's photo data base - I feel lucky in finding them. Often the search for images of manufacturers or retailers turns up nothing. But this is R N Cardozo & Bro's, Inc. furniture store going up in downtown St. Paul MN circa 1931.
Here's what the corner of E. 7th and Minnesota St. looks like today ... or after
...this was before
Just look at the style of these from a picture taken 1931 of the store's stock. It's so much fun to see in an old image, practically the same chair being made new again today, 80 years on!
