Leon, the end date of March 1958 narrows this down pretty tight. Thanks,..... Do you have a source for that I could use? Andy Yes, I do have a source. Page 12 of T...

Re: Stroh's Show Pick ups.

The Dog I picked up for free, It was abandoned in Detroit & was hanging out near my 1870 Privy hole I was digging in Detroit. Long story but to make it short I took Her Home. This was about 3 years ago. She's a Daschound just like the Frankenmuth Dog/Mascot.

Ebay is in business to make money once item has sold and fees paid no money in that!

There might be money in that, Money for people that use that info on there sites to sell for a subscription rate. Maybe thats what ebay don't like. LEON.

Re: Detroit House Demo Beer Cans.

Yes it was. The Schlitz had a 1967 date on can. Since the house was probably built around 1900 I wonder where the Schlitz & Colt 45 came from? maybe a 1967 addition to back of house? With all the houses being torn down I'm sure many good cans have been demo'd & thrown in Trash. I did look into big m...
