Andy Brothers Sawdust Snow Tires

As a follow up to Lloyd Hampson's "Memories of growing up in Canonsburgwhere he comments about a Goodyear engineer who visited Andy Brothers to get the lowdown on their sawdust snow tire design.  Here is an excerpt from the September 1945 Popular Science magazine.
Popular Science Sep 1945


As a kid, I can recall many a day rolling tires down to Andy Tires on South Central hoping they passed their muster as a usable and recappable tire so to receive as reward a baseball bat or ball.
We proudly honor the Andy Brothers for their innovation, for looking out for the Kids and  as Canonsburg Friends.
