Synopsis of Green Stamps and The Wringer Washer:

In January 2016, folks in Northwestern Illinois were asked to share their memories of the “good old days”. They were invited to write letters describing interesting, humorous, unusual, exciting (and even romantic) ”happenings” from the past. Many of them were born prior to 1940 and the majority grew up right here in Northwest Illinois. They were not selected from any particular group or social class, nor were they expected to have any special writing ability or talent.

From their responses, 153 were chosen to be included in this book.

Their stories aren’t history in the usual sense. Rather, they entertainingly describe a way of life that will never again be seen.
