 Trivia Answers - Questions #71 and 85: This is the FIRST tray the Trayman ever bought. It was purchased on a hot summer day, in the late 1970's, at Bussey's Flea Market, just north of San Antonio. The Trayman's Dad would take regular trips to antique stores and Flea Markets and the Trayman like to go along. He was in his sophomore year of college and was home for the summer. He had started working in a bar called the Dixie Chicken, which is wall to wall Texana and Breweriana. The madness was on with the purchase of this tray and a few Texas Beer Bottles from the 1940's. This will also be the last tray in the Trayman's collection. It just has to be doesn't it?
