Jeanne, This is an awesome photo and resembles the Egyptain Zipper considerably but still not it. I do thank you very much for this photo though as this was the month and year I was born. Very worthwhile to save! St. Louis is not that far from West Frankfort, Il but back in those days, it was. Takes about a little over an hour by automobile now, wonder how long it take by train back then. EdieKaye
