foster grantsIn 1929 Sam Foster sold sunglasses at a Woolworth store in Atlantic City. He called them Foster Grants. Soon movie stars began to wear them….some say to be incognito. Another story is they had red and sensitive eyes from the lights on the set while filming. Wearing sunglasses gave them some comfort. Anyone remember the ad campaign:
“Isn’t that _____ behind those Foster Grants?”
