Home Service Station

Today is Old Service Station Matchbook Day here on Ainsworth, Indiana. This is another matchbook I got on eBay and don't know anything about.

According to the American Matchcover Collecting Club's website, the Match Corp. of America, located in Chicago, began operating around the mid-1920s and was bought out by the Lion Match Corp. circa 1970.

The same old-timer who told me about Jack and Bud said that the guys used to kid Harry Grey by calling him "Grey Hairy."
