This well used and worn lunch box was my own when I was a child back in the '50's. I remember there was a matching wide-mouth thermos that went with it, although that is long gone. My younger sisters used this for school too, long after I'd grown out of it. When the black plastic handle broke, Dad made a new handle out of this nylon strap.

Looking at this now brings back memories of lunches my Mom made for me. The sandwiches then were always wrapped in waxed paper, and there was a thermos of soup and an apple inside. I can almost smell the lunches even now! Nowadays I use it as a cookie tin, when I'm baking and feel nostalgic.

Love Jude

I remember having lunch boxes like that in grammar school. The thermos always had a glass liner which meant by about day 3 of school, you'd dropped your lunchbox and shattered the liner of the thermos, making it unusable.

Exactly Vince! Mine didn't last very long either. Kids drop things all the time and we were no exception I guess.

Looks to be in good shape. Funny how something as simple as a lunch box can bring back so many memories.

I remember the days of yuk I don't like this, can I swap my sandwich for yours. That was always fun.

I used to get notes from my grandma on occasion, it was embarassing but it also made me feel special. I sure miss those days - life was so much simpler back then.

The notes would have been a nice touch, and you're right about it being so much simpler back then Jer!
