I saw these advertisers  company names in an old church directory today and thought I would share them here on the blog...These wouldn't interest too many unless from the Lee Center, Amboy or Franklin grove areas...sure takes us back to the 50's!  I am sure there were many more you could add...these were all that were listed as 1951 contributors in the book.
