What’s in a Name
The photo prompt this week from The Daily Post is Names. It’s funny how the name of a certain product can bring up different memories.
This is a perfect example. Who doesn’t know Prince Albert in a Can? Did anyone ever let him out? Interesting thing we learned about these cans, the miners in Arizona used them as markers for mine claims. They would put a slip of paper in them that had all the info about their claim, then put the can in a pile of rocks. Just a fun little factoid.
I have a couple of images of International trucks. At least a couple times at every art show someone will comment that their dad, or grandpa had one back in the day. The photos brings back memories for them.
Clearly these guys didn’t stay in business, despite the catchy name they had.
What about these names? Do they bring back any memories for anyone?
And finally, The Brick. If you watched Northern Exposure you certainly know that name. But did you know, The Brick got it’s name because the building is built from bricks? The original bar burned down, and was rebuilt with bricks to avoid that happening again.
Names certainly bring back memories, of people, places, and things.
