E L Sweet & Son
Lead Mold selecton from the E L Sweet & Son no. 7 catalog. Checkout the phone number. Don't see a date - no zip - looks late 40s.

RE: E L Sweet & Son
LH ___ Thanx for posting this ... I had forgotten about Sweets molds .. Never had one but some where along the line way back when I had one of their catalogs --- The Kid with Cane pole, Overalls, can of worms and a Dog.

Thanx

Geez, I don't think I've ever seen a Sweet mold - machined according to catalog. Some unusual jig head designs.

Your catalog could be newer than you think....

When I was a kid - early '60's - all the phone numbers in our area had "word" suffix's like your catalog shows. Ours was HA (Hamilton) 5 - 2040. The concept of area codes for phone numbers came later as well. Prior to that (area codes), all long distance calls had to go thru an operater.

Zip codes came about in the mid to late '60's....

Great info. Still think the catalog is older than 60s - maybe mid to late 50s then.
There are no plastic jigs and the jigs pictured all look saltwater style.

I too thought the designs looked salt water with the predominance of O'Shaughnessy hooks, but Tonawanda turned out to be almost Lake Erie front with EZ boat access.

Hahaha, I remember party lines too.
