Commercial Mail 1935-1964 range with 5 items incl colourful "Cole's Book Arcade, Bourke Street Melbourne to Collins Street" parcel label to Newmarket (the forerunner of Coles Stores?) with stamps tied by 15 OC 31 cds., Bourneville Cocoa monocolour 2d Paid uncancelled cover from Hobart to NSW & an1938 4 page catalogue from "The James Black Shoe Stores Ltd" 97 Rundle St, Adelaide noting women's footwear 70¢ to $1.60, children's 22¢ to 80¢ & men's 40¢ to $1.50 (LSD prices ranged from 2/3d for a pair of children's slippers to 14/11d for men's all leather boots & 15/11 for women's smart court shoes in black, brown, navy or blue calf). Today it would cost nearly this much to post out this catalogue as it would to purchase a decent pair of men's or women's shoes in 1935!
