Yes and wouldn't it be great if we could identify that Canadian cup?
A shame that they don't have drawings like they did later.
The movie from 1949 may help.

Very Happy These ads took me back to when we first arrived in the district back in 1981. The Farmers was still there and sold absolutely everything. Such a shame to see it close a few years later. Sad The building now has part of a gym and a beauty salon and a lot of unused space but the facade has been tastefully renovated and still sports the original Farmers wording.

That film is very interesting to watch. I enjoyed to see all the different shapes, how the lady's hand decorated the plates and added the transfer to others. Thank you Ev for uploading it.
