Huh. Extremely disappointed. Didn't see a single Burma Shave sign.
For the kiddies, who likely have never even heard of Burma Shave, let alone see the signs along side the roads.

That was great, Al. Thanks for the post and trip down memory lane.

Everything old is new again. Interesting how much of the old advertising style and "look" is being revisited. All that wonderful "new" website layouts are basically reworks of 1950-1960s ad formats. Picture on top, copy below.

The more I do, the less I accomplish.

Thanks for sharing that Al.

Many years ago I owned a Cadillac ! exactly like the pedal car showed in the video, until my Dad crushed it with the pick up truck. I'm a big fan of 50s & 60s cars and loved seeing them. All those signs ! wow FINA I'll bet it's been 50 years since I saw that one. Grapette was every kid's favorite back then.

Don't fear your tools, pay attention and respect the tools and avoid injury.
