    "Ghost Signs"
    One joy riding through small towns,
    catching an image of a ÔÇ£ghost signsÔÇØ

    In a half century or more, these original signs
    may lose their luster and vibrant color
    and also become
    "Ghost Signs"

    In 1882,
    the National Cheese Exchange
    was established at Plymouth
    where national cheese prices were set until 1955
    The city was soon known as the
    Cheese Capital of the World

    Today,
    several cheese and dairy companies
    are flourishing in Plymouth

    Artist: Michael Clark





    In the late 1870s,
    Many prominent European cheese masters
    came to this small picturesque German community
    because they had heard of the abundance and richness
    of Wisconsin produced milk

    Cheese Derby Parade
    The Artist: Gary Anderson





    Plymouth replaced the 1950's Cheese Derby Parade,
    with an annual New Year's Eve
    Midnight Cheese Drop







    "Big Cheese" will drop exactly at midnight!

    NYC has nothing over these Cheeseheads

    WadhamÔÇÖs Mobile Gas





    Wadham's Oil and Grease Company of Milwaukee
    refinery was in Indiana
    between 1917 and 1930
    Wadham's built over 100
    distinctive pagodas filling and service stations


    Wadham's was purchased by
    Vacuum Oil Company in 1930.
    Vacuum Oil was acquired by Socony
    which later became Mobil




    Early gas stations were small, ugly or utilitarian buildings
    that attracted complaints from neighbors



    Wadham's signature Pagoda service stations

    Japanese culture
    which was popular at the turn of the century,

    the design was one of the earlier examples of architecture
    forging a brand identity

    Each building was unique,
    having a different roofline and floor plan

    see the Cedarburg photo below
    for the pagoda-style roofs made of stamped-metal tiles
    Atop the gabled red roofs many stations had cupolas -
    with lanterns hanging from the corners


    Most of the Wadhams pagodas
    have suffered the fate of being razed
    in favor of the boring modern box style

    Few of these stations remain
    One, built in 1927, was in use as a gas station until 1978
    was restored in 2000,
    and is now a Registered Historic Place
    in the city of West Allis, WI.

    Another, pictured below was built in 1926,
    and is part of the Historic District in Cedarburg, WI.

    eye-catching stations
    something you would expect
    to see on Route 66

    How many young folks today, have only drank soda out of a can or plastic bottle?

    In the 1950's Wisconsin had 150 (returnable) glass bottle soda companies

    Today, there are only 13 (returnable) glass bottle soda companies in the US

    with 3 located in NE Wisconsin

    Remember . . . the soda machines outside of every gas station,
    with the little bottle cap opener built on the machine
    and the wooden cases for honor returns?

    . . . and the taste that tickled your tongue


    It is ironic, Coke/Pepsi out survived the great soda of my youth

    Cool Goodman Wisconsin





    The Town of Goodman originated in 1908
    as a logging community built by R.B. Goodman.
    a community in which to house his employees
    (AKA Company town)






    The town center, now known as
    the Goodman Club House
    offered a ballroom, theater, and restaurant.
    Famous entertainers frequented the Club House
    bringing top name performances to the area.







    The eighth cutting cycle on the original Goodman Lumber Company land
    took place in 1999.

    From 1927 through 1999,
    417 million board feet of timber have been removed
    yet the tract still contains
    about the same volume of timber that it had in 1927
