Grab the shovels!

50’s snow shoving!

Back in the 50’s about 1958 we had a good snowstorm and we use to go around asking people if they needed their sidewalk shoveled and make a little money that used to go far for a kid in those days!

Alot of candy was two for a penny and soda was about 7 cents you know what I mean! I remember a few of us shoveling the corner store and each of us got a whole dollar! And the owners wife gave us a bowl of tomato soup and hot chocolate and we were off to find more work..

    Ah, cheap sweets! Yes I remember going into sweet shops in the early 60s and spending very little and coming out with a huge bag of sweets. No wonder our teeth are all falling out…
    Sounds like parts of the US need some kids to start shovelling up the snow again!
