The SitM Project

Collecting pictures from the past.

Old pictures; photos, posters, maps

Why? For nostalgia — for “a longing for home or familiar surroundings; homesickness”, and for “bittersweet yearning for the things of the past”, and because “reminiscence of the speaker’s childhood or younger years”. And besides nostalgia: so that we don’t forget our history.

"At home after October Tenth"

"At home after October Tenth" ...and waiting to greet them will be The Champagne of Ginger Ales. Off they go in a shower of rice! Off for a joyous month of honeymooning in the Canadian Rockies. The days will speed swiftly by like a pleasant dream. Then they will come back -- these two -- to a reality even more pleasant... to the opening of their new home, to their first "at home." What a happy return! Old friends greet them with the merry tinkle of froested tumblers of Canada Dry -- and they toast the occasion in The Champagne of Ginger Ales.

The secret in liquid ginger

Gaily this fine old ginger ale dances and bubbles, reflecting, in its frosted gold hue, the bright scene about it, bringing its delightful fragrance and its delicious flavor to grace the event.

For -- like a rare old wine -- Canada Dry is made by a special exclusive process. All the aromatic fragrance of the ginger root is preserved in full. All the delicate flavor -- lost in less painstaking methods -- is retained. That is why Canada Dry is The Champagne of Ginger Ales.

A new low price

And now, too, Canada Dry is one of the most economical ginger ales you can buy. At its new low price, it is more than ever an outstanding value. The newest budget can readily find a place for the Hostess Package containing twelve bottles.

Canada dry's

These two delicious beverages are also made under the Canada Dry seal. Try them soon. They are delightful.
