Mister Ron's Basement #1588

This week we are once again reading from George W. Peck's 1900 book 'Sunbeams.'

Clothing fads come and go, and early adopters sometimes get embarrassed wearing odd items in public. Today's story concerns a man in such a situation. It's called 'The Yellow Shoe Period.'

Time: approx seven and a half minutes
