I found a picture of a Swastika on one of the pages of the US City Directory, Washington DC, 1935. The symbol is associated with an ad/sponsor named C.G. Sloan & Co. Auctioneers in D.C. Can anyone explain the use of this symbol in the US City Directory at that time. I know the Swastika goes back into ancient history before the Nazi's adopted it. I have my doubts that that this company was using it for such purposes. but you never know. Below is the link for anyone who wants to check it out. It is in the upper left corner. Thank you.
