||"As I was checking out the list of business formerly located in Chester I saw the Briner Brothers
name. That brought back a lot of good memories. When I was a young Lad growing up, the Briner family lived two or three houses away from us in
Garden City. I remember the father "Buzz" Briner as being a real nice person that enjoyed children. The whole family was very nice. I can still see us "playing" with the Briner children in their front yard. Way back in the early to mid fifties I remember "Buzz" driving around in a very old red car. It was very old in the fifties so my guess is it may have been like a Model A Ford or something like
that. The part I remember about the car so much is the sign they had mounted on the rear. The sign read , in big letters, "Caution Blind Man Driving ." Lower down on the sign was the Briner Brothers name stating that they were in the venetian blind business. We children were
given a ride in the old car now and then."
