My Favorite Burma Shave Sign
"Don't stick your elbow - Out too far - It might go home in - Another man's car. These old signs were all just great - too bad someone doesn't bring them back - with all the over-the-top billboards on the highway these days, Burma Shave would be a welcome change!
Still hoping to hear from someone who might have information about the Alva Roller Mills in the late 1920's. We have a bassinette that my mother bought from the (I think ex-) wife of the head of the Mills. Their name was Hart and the baby who slept in it was Richard Hart. Hope someone might remember the name. My father was a Goldbug, probably graduated in 1926 or 1927.
My father's name was Bruce Walters. He married Louise Fash from Capron in 1929. He and his brother Bill Walters both attended Alva High School. Not sure when Bill graduated, but he was a couple of years younger than Bruce.
I have his Goldbug patch which I would be pleased to donate to the school if there is a memoribilia collection. I always look forward to Friday night and more Alva tidbits. Thanks for all your efforts!" --
