Vintage Barlow Pocket Knife
Once again, I ran out of drawing paper so I was experimenting with some old Canson paper I’ve had for 35 years. This was my first Barlow pocket knife I bought at the Pte. Tremble Market on M-59 in Algonac, Michigan. It was exactly half of what I earned each week from my paper route. I had 64 homes and had to pedal 7 miles round trip every single day, rain, shine, or snow, all to make $10 a week. I checked on my iPhone which told me I basically made .18 a mile This is why there are no paper boys today. LOL!
