I came across this 1973 picture in my files recently, and it brought back fond memories. While I was busy taking a picture of the CTA bus, I managed to capture the Seymour Paisin store.
Seymour Paisin sold women’s clothing at 2629 West Devon Avenue. I don’t recall ever being in the store. But during the 1970s, when Wally Phillips held quizzes on his WGN-radio show, one of the prizes he invariably gave away was “a designer scarf from Seymour Paisin on Devon.”
Most mornings I listened to Wally while driving to work. I won prizes at least three times–and my wife wound up with at least three different Seymour Paisin scarves. She liked them, too.
After all these years, I remember only one of the quiz questions I successfully answered. See how you can do–and no fair using the Internet!
QUESTION–What product was advertised with the slogan, “Ask the Man Who Owns One”?
I’m sorry that I can’t offer a prize. I don’t have a radio show.
