Last week it was interesting to see who advertised in Willshire School’s 1948 Willow, the school’s first yearbook.
This week I am featuring local advertisers from the 1950 Willow. This information will coincide with some additional 1950 information that I will post in the next couple weeks. Hint: Some pretty exciting information that is only released every 10 years.
A census enumeration! Specifically, the 1950 census, which was just released earlier this month. And, as a supplement to these 1950 Willow advertisers, next week I will start posting the village of Willshire, as it was enumerated in the 1950 census.
But, back to today’s post. The 1950 Willow had about 28 advertisers from the Willshire/Chatt area, compared to about 20 area advertisers in the 1948 Willow. There were also advertisers from Van Wert and Decatur in the yearbook but I am including only those from Willshire and Chatt.

Next week, a glimpse of the 1950 census in Willshire!
