Store Displays

Gibraltar Paper was a company that produced many of the incredible cardboard store displays of the 1950's and 60's. Kool AId, Jello and Nabisco were just a few of the companys they worked with. These images all come from a catlog of things they produced. The first two photos are of their displays at trade shows.

Was Jell-o Land a Disneyland tie-in?

I don't think so - I dont think Jello was ever affiliated with Disneyland

Kool-Aid especially wonderful. Chesterfield too.

I bought this stuff on ebay - this is just the best of what was in the catalog. I have been buying for alot of years so I have way too much stuff packed away that I will dig out in the future

Flav-R-Straws ! I took one apart, once. It was a kind of ? pressed piece paper/fiber with the additive. I think I grew up in a good era (born 1947)but you have somehow managed to keep the fun going. In this day of uncertainty, I feel safe with Mr Toast. Thank You.
