Inside cover of 1950 BLOCK SHOP catalog
The inside cover of the 1950 Block Shop Catalog reveals that the toy store was located at 58 Wall Street in New Haven, Connecticut and that their telephone number was 5-9919. (I remember the prefixes being Spruce and Main but this phone number has the third number as 5 - which is JKL - so I'm not sure what the prefix was). The inside cover bears Ruth Fallgatter's signature and indicates that it is the catalog for 1950.
