Hello all - I think i saw posted on here somewhere a link to a site that has amazing images from old 50's and 60's cookbooks - like ones from brands like 7Up etc......anyone remember???

Thanks!

    I like candyboots too, but love Lileks for all his other wonderful non food humor, like the Dorcas Collection, men's bad fashions (there's a Husky Bastard line) and my favorite food sendup, "The Unbearable Sadness of Vegetables...

    I can't look at his site at work cuz I'll giggle too much.

        Not sure if this is what you're looking for, but it might be close.

              just imagine that if you don't do your work, you will be forced to down some jellied tomato refresher...
