"How do you KNOW it's vintage?" DUH Edition

Because it's stamped right there on the shoe last. And the stamp and date fit with the item, so it's not like someone randomly wrote the year on something they bought yesterday at Target. For as much as I love the information hunt, it's really nice to find an easy, obvious item like this. United Last Co. 1942. Brookton Branch. End of research.

Wish I could say the same for its more mysterious cast iron friend...
