Vintage Photo Love: Shoe Day

For this week’s collection from the Chicago Daily News photo archive, I stumbled on charming old photos from something called “Shoe Day.” These photos are from the first couple decades of the 1900s and from what I’ve gathered, Shoe Day was an annual event that furnished children in need, you guessed it, new shoes. The kid’s excited faces in these photos are so sweet.
