This photo** appeared in the company magazine. The caption says: McLean County Service Company had not been in business very long when this picture was taken. The occasion was their annual meeting in 1933, during which trucksalesmen thrilled patrons by appearing with bags of patronage refunds (really washers) closely guarded by American Legionnaires in full regalia including rifles (loaded with blanks). It was a good stunt, enjoyed by an enthusiastic audience which later picked up its refunds in the usual way. That's Manager George Curtiss in the center. Hasn't changed much, has he? **I would like to thank the McLean Co. Service Company for giving me permission to print this photo.
