Breakfast Club: “Burma-Shave: The Rhymes, the Signs, the Times” with Bill Vossler

June 14, 2023 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am

Join us for another Breakfast Club at the Stearns County History Museum! This meeting will feature Bill Vossler, author of “Burma-Shave: The Rhymes, the Signs, the Times”.

Local writer Bill Vossler tell the story of this unique Minnesota company, which went from rags to riches thanks to its unique roadside advertising technique. Between 1925 and 1963, these signs were seen all across the country.

"Burma-Shave: The Rhymes, the Signs, the Times" by Bill VosslerFor thirty years, the series of six signs posted along roadways were an icon of American life. The little jingles that touted a brushless shaving cream entertained travelers across the country. Many of us who lived during those thirty years could recite favorite jingles by rote. Then super highways and the hectic pace of modern life made them obsolete. Still, for those of us older than thirty-five, Burma-Shave signs are part of our history and treasured childhood memories.
