In some professions you have to hit the pavement and hunt for work because you never know where the next client/customer will be. In the case of this fellow, he only need stand at the front door and wait. If you build it they will come. They have no choice.

Apparently standing at the door wasn't enough to drum up business for Kelly & Davis in Pontiac, Michigan. They signed on as a business providing a hymn book, Praises by E. O. Excell, to the First Congregational Church of Pontiac. There they are, on the first page, followed by the lovely title page. Their ad appears towards the back of the book.

Funeral Directors. It's a category. I have a feeling this will be the only one in my collection.

  1. Interesting collection of businesses sponsoring the hymn books. Never know where the name of a company an ancestor worked at might turn up!
