Niagara Maid Silk Gloves, postcard (1909)

"Niagara Maid" silk gloves were made by the Niagara Silk Mills (later Van Raalte Silk Mills) on Sweeney Street, where the Gateway Apartments are today. The prominent "Martinsville" postmark captures a time when the northeastern village had its own postal service.
