Connecting the dots – Golo Footwear

July 21, 2014 § 2 Comments

When we were kids I remember my dad telling us he had worked on the 75th floor of the Empire State Building. It wasn’t until a few months ago when I started this blog that I learned some of the details. A couple of the articles that I found on my grandfather mentions my dad working for Golo Footwear as a stylist.  Perusing the trade magazines at the Library of Business and Science here in NY I came across the advertisement below. It matches a tie clip I found when I was looking through his things while visiting my mother.
