This is from when Procter & Gamble first introduced Jif. I do not know exactly when the kangaroo mascot disappeared but he was certainly gone by the very late 1960s as the label I remember as a small boy was very similar to the one seen today. In 2001, the Jif brand was purchased by the J.M. Smucker Company…not a bad pairing, eh?

Founded in 1918 — eight years before the road it sits upon was given its famous number — The Golden Spur Restaurant is the best such place remaining on what I consider to be "my" stretch of Route 66 which is anywhere from the Cajon Pass out to Monrovia. » Click to continue »

Despite how cool we might think this car is today and it otherwise being quite advanced and well-built, the public of the time soundly rejected what became known as the shark-nose design. Within two years, the Graham brand name was gone from the automotive scene. After its service for war production, in 1947, Graham-Paige’s carmaking assets ended up with Kaiser-Frazer.
