Stand Corrected

The zoom in on the calendar really helped.

Calendars indicate 1943

The insurance calendar appears to be dated 1943 and the Watkins calendar indicates January 1st is a Friday which is 1943.

[The insurance calendar is for February 1940. The Watkins calendar is from 1937. And on the left we have a 1941 almanac. - Dave]

Watkins products

I see she has a Watkins calendar. Watkins Products (seasonings and extracts, soaps and detergents, cough and cold remedies, liniment, etc.) were sold by traveling salesmen. I can remember the Watkins man stopping by my grandparents' house in East Texas, when I was spending summers there in the 1960s. Founded in 1868, Watkins is still around today.
