Thanks to Victoria for sending: ” I found this empty can of sardines from the old Sea Lion canning factory in Lubec, Maine, which closed a decade ago. From the look of the closing mechanism I’m guessing it’s from the forties. Neat!”

If you have a photo of a neat find from your house or place of work please send an email to princeofpetworth(at)gmail.com thanks. Please let me know where/what neighborhood you found it in too. Thanks.

This is the former Metro K grocery store that closed at the end of November 2018.
