ephemera of the 40's & 50's

Cool site, Ephemera Now. Ephemera from the 40's and 50's, mostly advertising.

Is it just me or does she seem a little "twisted"?

Also from this site, I think I've found the perfect main course for the Dr-Pepper-Aspic "appetizer"!:

"Ham Shortcakes with Pea Sauce" Yummy!

What a nightmare. It's no wonder the kids started turning to drugs in the sixties.

oh and here's another.... "Peas in Potato Boats"...

Dear GOD what was up with the peas?

She's not twisted--she's plastic!

It probably has to do with the fact that peas are one of the few vegetables that actually don't turn to mush if you freeze and then thaw/cook them ... of course, canned peas are another story altogether. Ick.
