Description
 
The Little Red School House was a trademark of the C. M. Henderson & Co., and an image of it was stamped on the bottom of one of each pair of shoes it sold. In order to promote the company's 'Red School House Shoes', this cut out school house was given out to any boy or girl found wearing or purchasing a pair of the Henderson shoes at participating stores. Printed in red and black the uncut sheet includes the red school house, plus cutouts of people, a chimney, trees, and a fence, all which could be assembled with a series of folds and a bottle of glue in order to "construct in miniature the famous little building." Measures 12" x 61/4", uncut.  The cut-out compliments of J & A Van Kuren, Whitehall, Mich..
