I think you are saying the 1939 picture is fake. The jar does look like it was pasted there. :lol:

The mustard came in what before that? Cans I think.

Going forward, or moving forward, I find that "going forward" or "moving forward" is an irksome phrase that I wish would just go or move away. :lol:

Are you implying that my Photoshop skills might just be in serious need of improvement? :mrgreen:

Hummm... no comments from you guys about my bit of trivia there about Cary Grant living in Edna St. Vincent Milay's 9.5ft wide house in NYC. .... and John Barrymore, and Margaret Mead too.

I just assumed that it must have been a classy location close to all the hotspots.

NYC is a BIG city. But that address is WAY down in lower Manhattan in Greenwich Village. That's where all the artsy people in the 50s hung out and that is where the Beatniks got started in the early 60s.
Always been an artistic place.

But the bizarre part is that the house is the narrowest in NYC at only 9.5ft wide.
I think it recently sold again for about 3 million.

Having been Cary Grant's house didn't hurt the value either.
