Seeing these makes remember how much was lost when the house on my old homeplace burned.

Mamahen sorry to hear that. Fire scares me more than anything. Where I used to live the whole mountain went up - scary. (we were ok - just lots and lots of smoke)

I remember Bayer aspirin and band aids came in tins. Come to think of it, a lot of things did!

Fire can take everything, Mh; I'm sorry to hear that you were one of its victims.

Yeah, Cm, those band-aid and Prince Albert cans held a lot of fish bait for country kids over the years. Kids today have probably never heard the old Prince Albert-in-a-can joke, and might not understand it if they did.

Thank you both.....and yes those cans held many treasures after the original contents were gone, and I remember the Prince Albert joke as well :))
