Q. As a former Herbertsville Road Brick resident (from the late 40's to the 80's), I'm hoping that someone from that area can help me. My father (now deceased) used a jeweler's rouge in his workshop that was wrapped in red paper and came in a green box. He probably purchased it at the hardware store on Herbertsville Road sometime in the 50's. He swore by the product and we need to find it again. Does anyone remember the name of the rouge and if/where it can be found? Thanks so much in advance!
