                      The Helms Bakery truck! Man, did we wait on the curb for him to drive by. Best doughnuts ever!
                      We had a Helms Bakery in Montebello (SoCal) where I grew up. When they were baking you could smell it for blocks. The brick building is still there but is now a bakery outlet for several brands.
                      Helms products were never sold in stores, only from their fleet of trucks that drove to neighborhoods all over SoCal.
                      Helms.JPG

                      It was just a couple of blocks from Montebello Dairy where we went to buy milk. We had a monthly account there and they'd just mark your purchases on a 3x5 card and we'd pay the bill once a month. The dairy is also still there but the cows are long gone and the 5-acre pasture has been built over. The dairy is now being run by the founders grandson that I grew up with - they lived just up the street.
                      Although I now live about 30 miles away I go by the dairy several times per year. My wife loves their chocolate milk and the holiday egg nog is absolutely outstanding. And it's all still sold in glass bottles.

                        Back in the 60's i remember we had a local, to Waterbury, Connecticut, a beverage, soda, company that made deliveries to your residence.
                        X-Tra Soda Company.
                        We didn't get any, as mom and dad wouldn't have to do with anything like that, back in the old days. :(
                        I remember the route driver was a real nice guy, and sometimes would give us kids on the block, a free soda or two, if you timed it right during the summer time vacation from grade school.

                          Converse Dr J high tops.
                          I got these when I was 15 and I'm 52 now. I still wear them occasionally.
                          I'd say they've stood the test of time! 20190426_171111.jpg

                            We had a case of A-treat soda in the cellar stairway. It was NOT for daily drinking. Returnable bottles. Not sure what size they were. They sat there long enough that the bottle needed to be wiped off before opening...

                              Speaking of returnable bottles, remember when beer came in returnable? I've kept my gun cleaning supplies in this box for at least 35 years, and before that it was spare parts for BMX racing. 20190426_173312.jpg

                                    I would LOVE to see anyone release a book like that today, especially Disney!
                                    Can you imagine the controversy?
