  1. All the pictures and ads are truly delightful, Jon. I hadn't realized how little the Whitman's Sampler box had changed over the years. They've been in business for a century, I'll bet, and must have the most recognizable candy box in the world.

  2. Like them all but the Lane cedar chest brings back memories. In the 50's most girls in this area received one for high school graduation to start her hope chest in. I still have mine even though it isn't in such a good shape.

  3. Like Paula, in '68 all the senior girls were gifted miniature Lane cedar chests. I still use mine as a jewelry box.

    I think that LIFE magazine cover is my favorite - classy and a bit cheeky, don't you think? I'm sure she was a very nice lady, but Mary Pickford gives me the creeps!

  4. Mary Pickford certainly doesn't look happy being a Valentine's Day girl does she?

  5. To quote Captain Renault from Casablanca when talking to Rick "Just as I suspected, you are a rank sentimentalist".
