Editor’s note: This is the 87th of a series about growing up in Marysville during the late 1930s and the 1940s written by Bill Boyd. Each article is a snapshot of the people, businesses and activities during that era as seen through the eyes of a young boy.
Boyd was born in Marysville in 1932, graduated from Marysville High School in 1950, and lived the greater part of his life here.
Some time ago, I wrote about cleaning the wallpaper in our house during the 1930s. That was part of our “spring cleaning” routine, and when I got old enough to help do the cleaning, I had a great time. But there was another spring housecleaning chore that was even more fun. It was cleaning our rugs.
