Our (ordinarily) Daily Sykes #485- A Cream of Chelan Still Life Behind Glass

Horace has left us a clue. A possible year for this "Cream of Chelan Still Life Behind Glass" is 1947. The poster lying on the stage behind the plate glass window schedules a week for apples beginning on Oct. 26. 1947 is the most likely year for Horace Sykes during which Oct. 26 comes on a Sunday. I know or have felt first hand the Washington State apple propaganda of the late 1940s. It was a time when any doubts that this state - especially the part of it with Wenatchee - was the best grower of Apples anywhere, would have been repelled as a threat to one's provincial principles.
