May 31, 1897. One day, a fair young lady lost her shoe in a Wells Fargo office; what she was doing, we cannot say. However, being the company of personal service, one agent forwarded the mislaid shoe to another, seeking to complete the pair. Throughout California and Oregon the lonely one traveled, gathering express tags as it went. Today, one agent added a verse: "We hope this shoe will keep its strength As it goes from state to state, For truly we know how to sympathize-- We, too, are without a mate." "This Old Shoe" is on display in Wells Fargo's Los Angeles History Museum.
