Forgiving Sins in Comfort

I found this advert on a page from a 1959 issue of the long-running U.S. Roman Catholic journal, The Homiletic and Pastoral Review. (The journal was published under several titles, all of which were similar, but apparently made for difficult cataloging.)

Really, “confessional chairs” is a furniture category?
(The Chicago Seating Co. appears to have gone the way of all things — moved to Mexico, and then Taiwan, and then China, and probably Burma or Tanzania next. They appear to be best remembered — at least by google — for a 1949 anti-trust case. No, I’m not a lawyer, I didn’t read the appellate court decision, and probably couldn’t make sense of it if I did.)
