OK folks. Winter has been pretty good to us but I think we still need a diversion about this time of year. Following Will be two posts. The first one will be a list of trade names from the 30's era. The second will be a list of products to be matched up to the trade names. The problem here is I have no key of correct answers. I have researched some and firmly know some of the matches. Others are not so distinct. Research carefully and be sure of the match up and maybe we can get a good key for this list in the end!

Happy researching! This should be a good conversation opener for all of us that have relatives and friends that may remember some of these.
