This was from the estate of Arthur Kassin but could have just as easily belonged to his late wife Alice (nee Swanek). Considering that they were antique collectors it's also possible that it was something that they picked up along the way. Which seems less likely since I found it tucked in a drawer of a basement desk where other personal items were kept. Regardless, it's out there now in the blogosphere.
I'm guessing that it's from the early 1960s. The new Winkleman's employee was to report to 25 Parsons at the corner of Woodward in Downtown Detroit for training at the Tech Plaza store in Warren. Starting full-time pay in "Smallwear" was $42.50 for 40 hours of work with a 1-2% commission. Or basically a buck an hour plus whatever they could hustle through sales. Work work work.
