Have you ever heard of the Kentucky Radio Corporation or Ken-Rad? The company pioneered the development and the manufacturing of incandescent light bulbs. The company was eventually sold to MPD, which still operates at the corner of 9th and J.R Miller. This 100W 12V bulb, believe it or not, according to the seller is new and unused. Of course it could have been a factory second.

And here's the most-watched Owensboro related item on EBay right now:

James H. Hickman was one of the city's best-loved mayors; he was elected six times. He also started the first city park, then called Hickman Park, he purchased the land for $4,000. It would eventually be known as Legion Park. Hickman was also in the wagon business. This tin sign is from 1906 and you'll find several like it on Ebay.
