In the « Popular Shoe & Co. Ltd » logo, the letters « P » and « S » are transformed into children’s play structures. We can in fact see 5 children playing on the letters. We see a ladder on the letter “P” and a slide on the letter “S”.
The picture, taken in front of l’Hôtel de la Pomme d’or, shows a vehicle procession for Léo Papin’s funeral in 1948.
Family portrait showing Léo Papin and his wife Alice Gervais surrounded by their 11 children in the living room of their residence.
