Usually I tell the stories here, but here is a chance for you to tell your story, if you have one.
My brother, Raymond Pert, had/has a student at Lane Community College whose grandparents or great grandparents (some relative anyway) helped run a small gas station at the bottom of Page, a small town between Pinehurst and Smelterville. The name of the station was Three Toots. When it was operating, it was located on then Idaho Highway #10. Now we just call it "the old road".
My questions is, does anyone know the real story of how this gas station was named?
My mother has been asking all the old timers in the valley she can think of for the answer, and I think of the 15 people she has asked, she has gotten 15 different stories.
Anyone think they know the true story behind Three Toots in the Silver Valley. Please comment if you do.
