I, too, remember the go-carts/scooters we built with roller skate parts and old lumber pieces. We made ramps which were a few feet high and, somehow, we did not kill ourselves as we flew down the ramps on our carts and out onto the cement driveway. We also cleaned things with gasoline soaked rags; I don't know how we ever made it to adult-hood.
Diane Siracusa - Hollister, MOAbout the wooden boxes for shipping butter. We had a milk delivery door to door. I remember seeing these containers used for butter and they were large boxes. This is in the days before disposable shipping containers, so they were used year after year, until they broke apart. I suspect that is the kind of box in the strip. People sell these boxes on e-bay even nowadays, since they are collectors' items right now. I suspects it is the same as grape boxes. Even as early back as 10 years ago, grapes used to be displayed in stores in large boxes made out of wood and cardboard, and nowaways, they are in styrofoam trays... Packaging changes with the times.
