Burrojaps Shoes Are Worn By Winners

Burrojaps Shoes advertisement in the Washington Times - June 18th, 1912

Here’s a cool advertisement from the Washington Times. This is from June 18th, 1912. By the way, Washington played the Philadelphia A’s that day and beat them 5-4 to pull within 1 1/2 games of the first place Boston Red Sox. Our favorite star, Walter Johnson won 33 games that year (!) but, alas, the Senators finished in second place with a record of 91-61 behind eventual World Series winners, the Red Sox.
