Burma Shavings

It was about as far back as my memory goes, back when I was practicing my phonics on Burma Shave signs. My family unit rolled out of Rolla, leaving Route 66 in our rearview mirror, headed for the springs. Our car bobbed and weaved on a roller coaster road that unfurled through the thick woods, out in free range country, where you not only had to keep an eye out for deer, you often had to dodge pigs and cows and horses.

  1. I used to know where to Burma-Shave signs were on Highway 50 between Jefferson City and Owensville MO.
    We yell them out each time.

  3. Hi, I just picked up that Burma Shave set that you have pictured. Although I am missing the sign that says “he saw the train”. Mine are very heavy metal so I believe them to be old. Is that set still produced? Thanks Mark
