Allen's Giant Gallery of Vintage Packaging Design

Jif Peanut Butter Jar, 1958

Turtle Wax Bottles, 1950's

Snap-E-Tom Tomato Cocktail, 1960's

Kodachrome II, 1960's

Just to reinforce Mark's point that food packaging just ain't what it used to be... my friend Allen Sandquist has created an online gallery of vintage consumer product packaging design that's as magnificent as it is massive. His collection spans everything from peanut butter and deodorant soap to instant chocolate and roach killer. Check it:
