Rubins Halifax overcoat

From the days back when Gottingen street used to be the place to go.
Now on eBay!
This vintage overcoat was made of “Algora” fabric and sold by Rubin’s of 65 Gottingen Street, Halifax Nova Scotia.  While marked “Algora” (presumably a mixture of wool, alpaca, and angora), it feels like a pretty straight ahead wool.  The thread color on the top button is different than the other two, but otherwise, the coat is in great shape.
