Re: Powel Crosley sold eggs, too.
- I was surprised to learn that quail eggs are still a popular commodity among some Americans. A woman I know buys them buy mail, for cooking and for hatching and raising.

> Michael Banks sent us a 1944 ad (posted in our Powel Crosley, Jr. photo album from microfilm) where Powel was selling quail eggs from his then-Sleepy Hollow property in North Vernon, now the Crosley Fish and Wildlife Area, made up of 4228 acres of rolling hills, ponds and the Muskatuck River. Approximately 80 percent of the property is wooded. Most of the terrain is covered with steep to gently-rolling hills. About seven miles of the Muscatatuck River flows through the property, which also has thirteen ponds from 2-14 acres.
