  • Jeffrey Hollis 5y

    Heh heh! I've never seen Swans Down before, and it's been a while since I've seen Gaines Burgers (I sure do remember the ads when I was a kid, though!), but it's amazing how the rest of that's still around!
  • Denis Goulet 5y

    Dream Whip, Log Cabin AND Corn Flakes?! I smell a nymphomaniac!
  • Hello Chicago 5y

  • Michael Paul Smith 5y

    Hello Chicago Chicago, my mother never left the house
    unless she was dressed up, even to go to the corner store.
    It wasn't a snobby thing, it's just what you did back in the day.
    My how times have changed.

    But you can tell that the shopper isn't really overly dressed up. Casual sweater over the shoulders, flat loafers, etc.

    Love this pic!

  • Patrick Hoesly 5y

  • bill f 5y

    Geez. I remember those old Kool Aide packages...sigh. Well everything she has is "processed" (bad), except for cheese, bread and veggies, which are as close to unprocessed as you can get.

    That can of Maxwell House coffee is one pound. Check out the net weight in similar cans nowadays.
  • Max Penn 5y

    That woman also has Yuban and Maxwell House instant in her cart. Maybe she brews (or reconstitutes) based on how good a friend is coming over.
  • Max Penn 5y

    Oh...and Sanka, too.
  • Hello Chicago 5y

    What purpose did this photograph serve? Was it to promote some big company like General Mills?
  • The Fenriswolf 5y

    From M.P.Smith-" ...my mother never left the house
    unless she was dressed up..." I can remember when you didn't dare go to the airport without wearing your Sunday-Going-To-Church clothes on. But look what people wear to church these days...
