Those Grand Old Burma Shave Road Signs
For those who never saw any of the Burma Shave signs, here is a quick
Lesson in our history of the 1930s and '40s. Before there were interstates, when everyone drove the old 2 lane roads, Burma Shave signs would be posted all over the countryside in farmers' fields.
