Matchbox Monday Night! Now batting...

Matchbox Monday Night! Now batting - this Ohio Blue tip box cover featuring Ted Williams dates from 1955. Neither his name nor the Red Sox are present. I am only relying on every other post on eBay or Etsy of this box. They say it’s him without any reference but who am I to believe?

This 1950 era truck stop matchbook is somewhat of a mystery.

This 1950 era truck stop matchbook is somewhat of a mystery. Probably an oasis for truckers at the time with its showers and bunk rooms. They even sold don Fraser’s own brand of gas. My search has only hit a dead end. Seems to have been a big deal In Missouri and Illinois with 4 locations. I’ll have to climb in my big rig and go see for my self.

Just completed another talk at the Brookfield Historical Society. 17+ people were nice enough to hang with me through the tales I weaves around my military-themed discoveries.

I like finding evidence of the vibrant single owner motels that used to dot the highway

I like finding evidence of the vibrant single owner motels that used to dot the highways and vacation spots. If the same one(waiting to hear from the current owners off season) this place is still around and boasts the most economic stay in the area -How? Sometimes folks just want a clean room and a bath and let the surroundings be the awesome amenities. I hope they’re still around - I would definitely stay here.

I have created a display for those hidden treasures- that are no hidden. Stop by the Bethel Public Library through April 19th and see what needed to be found. Or, just zoom in on this mini collage and enjoy the virtual-ness of it all.
