and looka there...big 2-3 lb cans of Crisco for 51 cents? I'll have to believe my mom next time she tells me how cheap it was to stock a pantry when she was young.

Would love to see those prices again! With gas going sky high it sure would be nice to get a break somewhere!

Hmmm correction! I magnified the photo and its
25 pounds of sugar and 24 pounds of flour, and cans of milk; so yeah those WERE really good prices. See what happens when the government gets involved!

I find it interesting, this was before the government subsidized farmers, but I wonder if they did for the milk because its a pretty accurate price for today.
