Title

Pawnshops Here Could Furnish Good Museum

Description

This article explains the life of a pawnbroker from bizarre items (like a stuffed bear), rich clients who pay interest just to keep their winter coats safe over the summer, con artists, and a minister who scraped by pawning his Bible every Monday and retrieving it every Saturday evening.
