Thomasville, North Carolina, USA

The Burma-Shave era gave drivers the pleasure of reading the landscape (literally!) as they traveled the new national highways. The original advertising campaign was aimed at the man's face in this mural. Each line of the jingle was on a separate roadside placard. From 1927:
     Shave the Modern Way
     No Brush
     No Lather
     No Rub-In
     Big Tube 35¢ Drug Stores
