Artifact of the Week – Dr. M.O. Good / Jaeger Wool Sign

Apparently Dr. Mac Good thought of himself as a wit and told his patients if they complained to read the sign.  There was Good, better and best. He was only good.

The sign was painted over an English enamel sign for Jaeger Pure Wool.

Another early Jaeger advertisement reads:

JAEGER PURE WOOL WEAR
For Ladies, Gentlemen and Children 
DR. JAEGER'S well known and well tried system has stood 
the test of twenty-five years in all climates and in all parts of the 
world. It is invaluable to Travelers for its properties of 
PROTECTION FROM CHILL

In 1927 the Good dentist was located at 215 Pitt Street; in 1937 he was practicing at 4 Second Street East. The 1959 and 1963 Directories show him at 126 Sydney Street.
