Danville, Illinois, USA

The Burma-Shave signs helped sell America on the automobile. How? By putting a smile on our faces, just like a lot of the other products (remember Chuckles?) that came out of the "roaring 20s." Probably the most famous Burma-Shave jingle is now enshrined in the Smithsonian. From 1943:
     Within This Vale
     Of Toil
     And Sin
     Your Head Grows Bald
     But Not Your Chin
