We’re on our 2nd day of celebrating kitschy images from the fifties. Here’s a smiling housewife appearing on our screen from a 70 year old ad for Edwards coffee.
The coffee came in a vacuum-packed can for the regular grind or a jar for the instant kind.
Here’s a photo of a vintage can that someone kept through the years. The image comes from Etsy and is sold by Terminal37Antiques.
Note the Safeway logo on the bottom of the can. The brand was sold exclusively at Safeway and was very popular in the mid-century and beyond.
Stay tuned for more more classic fifties ads for grocery items throughout the month of September.

I remember the vacuum-packed can. My folks got their coffee like that.
