Burma Shave Signs

A set of Burma Shave ads is assembled along a portion of Old Route 66. At least one of the signs is missing, so the saying doesn't make a lot of sense, but it's cool anyway. Just south of the intersection of Pontiac and Aurora.

Burma Shave sign sets are often short-lived in a particular location, but be on the lookout for these nostalgic placards north of Pontiac.
