On the Road To Collecting Jim Trautman
Road maps are a joy to collect and in most instances very inexpensive. There are thousands of different road maps to collect. One can try to collect from certain decades or time periods or different types. Some collectors concentrate on road maps that were issued by oil companies through their gas stations or maps that were issued by each state, province or local community. Maps were also issued by tire companies to bring in customers. The range is unlimited and for the collector a guarantee that each visit to a yard sale or flea market will turn up an item not in the collection.
Road maps have been issued and distributed for special events; such as the 1933 Century of Progress in Chicago or the 1939 New York World's Fair and even for the Canadian Expo of Montreal. Maps have been seen as a valuable tool to find one's place on the road to...
Jaws Memorabilia James Burrell
Released in the summer of 1975, the classic thriller Jaws captured the public’s attention like no movie before it and instilled in them a fear of the open water. The tale of a enormous great white shark that terrorizes the population of a seaside resort town, prompting the local police chief to join forces with a marine researcher and shark hunter to track and kill it was Hollywood’s original summer blockbuster hit. Taking an enormous bite out of the box-office, it smashed all previous records and made a household name of the film’s director, a then unknown 27-year-old named Steven Spielberg. But before it became a watershed movie Jaws started life as a bestselling novel by author Peter Benchley. A former speechwriter for President Lyndon B Johnson, Benchley was also a journalist for the Washington Post and an editor for Newsweek Magazine. Fascinated with sharks since an early age, he was inspired to write Jaws after reading a 1964 news piece about a fisherman who had caught a 4,550-pound great white off Long Island. Several years later Benchley would propose a shark-themed story to Doubleday publishers and Jaws would be released in February of 1974.

The Heisey Glass Company By Sean George and Wendy Saigeon
Every week, at a show or store locations, we hear “Heisey Glassware is the best glassware ever made”. It is difficult to argue this, as Heisey did have their own unique recipe. Many other companies experimented, but no other competitor could match the design, brilliance and quality of the Heisey Glass Co. This article is dedicated to the evolution of the Heisey Glass Company, and the history behind the man who made the best quality and clarity of pressed glass in North America, Mr. Augustus H. Heisey.
The History of Coca-Cola Helen Nash
The product that has given the world its best-known taste and led to a memorabilia craze was born in Atlanta, Georgia, on May 8, 1886. Dr. John Stith Pemberton, a local pharmacist, produced the syrup for Coca Cola® and carried a jug of the new product down the street to Jacobs' Pharmacy, where it was placed on sale for 5 cents a glass at the soda fountain. Carbonated water was added to produce a drink that was at once "Delicious and Refreshing," a theme that continues to echo today wherever Coca Cola is enjoyed...
