Old ads: 'Ed & Joe's Shops'
Any reader know who Ed and Joe were?

A reader comments: I was doing a search for "Ed and Joe's" and your site came up and I saw an ad from the 50's (left) and you asked who they were. They were a import/export company for jewelry and other stuff. If you want to see what kind of jewelry go to Ebay.. this is one of my listings that I am selling...
