Merrick, NY--The Centurion Newsletter wants your old photos!
Our first two contributors are Juergens & Andersen, the Chicago-based company that pioneered the "Add-A-Pearl" concept, and jeweler Craig Underwood of Fayetteville, AR-based Underwoods Fine Jewelers, who sent in photos of himself and his dad, Bill. Yes, that's Craig at age four, learning to identify gems!
Juergens & Andersen trade ads from 1899, above, and the 1920s, below. An old catalog is below bottom.
Below, top to bottom: Craig Underwood at age four, learning to use a microscope with a cookie in hand; and adult Craig today. Bill Underwood in 1964 and Bill today.
