Owen Historical Society News: Huckster story harkens back to by-gone day

-A A +A
By Bonnie Strassell

In the 1930’s Owen countians recognized the piercing blast of the air-horn as it echoed up and down the hills and hollows of Owen.
The words “Here Comes Bob” painted on a large, rambling red truck were the only introduction needed to announce the weekly visit of the Bromley huckster Bob Lucas.
Yolanda Lucas Ellis, Bob’s daughter, was the official horn blower for her father as she accompanied him from community to community; and she will share some of her childhood memories at the historical society meeting Thursday.
