Made on a page of the 1852 book, Tales of My Landlord - The Heart of Mid-Lothian, 4 1/2 x 7 1/2"
as a lad i frequented a music store in St. Paul called Torps, and Arnie worked there. The guys that ran the place were all really old, but they let us put guitars and amps on layaway and make weekly payments, which was either really cool or really desperate on their part. in any event, they were directly responsible for the birth of punk in St. Paul in the 70's. without them we'd have had to go to Minneapolis for gear, and no self-respecting East-sider would do that.
