I’m guessing that we’ll see ericmvintage post this advertising pocket mirror on ig soon. It went too high for me.

Great write up on the origin of the term 'wabash' by, I believe, Iron Horse: https://the-rite-stuff.com/blogs/news/denim-mythbusting-is-wabash-fabric-an-accurate-name

That's a great read. We have a street called "Wabash Ave" near where I live (Toronto) and I have always been curious as to how it got its name. There is an old linseed oil factory on the street, and other old factory buildings nearby as well so I kinda figured it maybe had to do with them. After reading this article it is more likely to do with the railroad tracks that lie close by. Either way i enjoyed the article!
