On a ride
Here's another useless poll. I'm good at useless posts. What have you seen while on a ride? Some random sights polled. If you have a story, mention it!
Back in the day..................What is " A Mail Pouch tobacco barn "
Nice background info Dinero!What is " A Mail Pouch tobacco barn "
Thanks for the info and great story you got there! I could get into that for sure!Back in the day..................
Mail Pouch was one of the biggest to provide the "service". People representing Mail Pouch would travel the roads and pick barns that:
1. Needed painting
2. Had high visibility from the road
They would paint the entire side of the barn facing the road with a barn-size replica of a Mail Pouch chewing tobacco package.
Mail Pouch didn't pay for the billboard and the farmer got (at least) one side of his barn painted.
You still see them sometimes in the midwest but not nearly as many as there used to be as the barns fall down or the paint fades.
