Allen,s Letter To Roger #16

Posted By on February 24, 2015

J M Allen To RogerOne of my memories of Charlie Allen is that he always had a smile on his face. Charlie suffered with a physical problem, but he never let it get the best of him. He was indeed an inspiration to all that knew him. You may remember the television series “Gentle Ben”. Charlie and wife Beverly trained their own bears for that show. It was a good family program and had good ratings with the public. The Allens had a home north of Bakersfield, Calif, called Pixeley. It was just off the Interstate 10. We never failed to stop and have coffee and cake with them and of course we cut up jackpots. This note has nothing to do with the letter above. I just thought of good times with good friends.

About a year ago I received an old tattered and pretty well beat up magazine. It took about 7 months for me to clean and put the pages in order, then into photo shop.

I hope you will enjoy the following. 

Please note The magazine or tabloid was from the Marrill Publishing Co. 1934 No. M3480.
