I used to eat these Chef Boy-Ar-Dee pizzas in a kit all the time.

This is cool! I never knew Chef Boy-Ar-Dee sold something like this. I'm a little concerned about the way she is using his sweater as a plate, though.

:lol: Yep, laundry pre-treater due to swing into action.

I think those kits are still being sold, though the box has changed from back then. Seems like ours was in a red box.

Wow! I wonder if there are still any of the autographed ones of these around anywhere today. If not, I wonder what happened to them all. Do you have the year for this? I'm wondering how much 25¢ was at that time.

I forgot to label it, this is from the August 1913 edition of Motion Picture Story.

$6.53 in today's currency. That would be really cheap for an authentically autographed star photo. I wonder if it was just stamped rather than actually signed?

I'm inclined to believe that, at this price, it would be authentically signed. If my source is correct, the average yearly wage was $1,296 in 1913, and per month that would be only $108. Divide that by 4, it would be $27 a week.

I mean, think about it, if you spent .25 on a photo, you may have to forgo 2 or 3 trips to the movies that week!!! :shock: :o The Horror!!

Strange lawnmower. No wonder the guy across the fence is scratching his head. :)
