That list of history is interesting and shows the evolution of security. Ever thought about needing a padlock for a dairy door? What about a pigeon loft? Or a chicken coop? The quotes are from an article in McCline’s Magazine. Date unknown, but probably from the 1930’s or 1940’s.
It’s titled “Spending a Dollar to Save Two.” This is not an advertisement for a frugal person that hates to spend dollars – even to save two. It’s a dangerous advertisement to read because it highlights almost every need there could be for a padlock, and it reminds you that there’s scarcely a person who won’t find at least one reason to buy one. There are many other suggestions, but remember: don’t buy a sham padlock! (The little word “Yale” doesn’t cost much and is worth more.) Whatever you pay, you’re getting value for your money.
