Description: 

Ide Collar Company of Troy NY, was a popular men's clothier in the early twentieth century. This print captures a store front that displays the wears of Ide Collar Company. Iconic to Kansas City is that this site is located at the haberdashery that was owned by Truman and Jacobson. Harry S. Truman and his friend, Eddie Jacobson owned a haberdashery at 104 W. 12th St., Kansas City, Missouri. The name of the store was the Truman and Jacobson Haberdashery, located at 12th and Baltimore (104 West 12th) Kansas City, Missouri. The store was opened in 1919 and it failed in 1921 - (taken from the Truman Library website). Visible in this print the entry way is encased in glass displaying popular items for sale including hats, collars, ties and shirts. A promotional sign for Ide Collar Company is apparent in the left window. At the top of the store bright stylized lettering the following text appears"Ide", "Shirts", "Ide", and "Collars". Directly below this, possibly from a different retail merchant, in worn lettering the following text is provided "Hosiery", "Gloves", "Belts" and "Hats". The floor tile in the entry way front provides the names "Truman & Jacobson". To the left of the store a free standing "No Parking" sign from the Hotel Glennon is visible.
