About the Photos

Our holdings include hundreds of glass and film negatives/transparencies that we've scanned ourselves; in addition, many other photos on this site were extracted from reference images (high-resolution tiffs) in the Library of Congress research archive. (To query the database click here.) They are adjusted, restored and reworked by your webmaster in accordance with his aesthetic sensibilities before being downsized and turned into the jpegs you see here. All of these images (including "derivative works") are protected by copyright laws of the United States and other jurisdictions and may not be sold, reproduced or otherwise used for commercial purposes without permission.

Fitger Conetops

Fitger Conetops

Two fellows enjoying Fitgers Beer from conetop style cans. They look to be in a trailer, camper or something similar. Why the one fellow is wearing a tie is a mystery, but he sure seems happy to down a beer. Fitgers was a large regional brewery in Duluth, MN. They lasted until 1972. The conetop cans in the picture were from around 1960 I'd guess. View full size.

Fitger's can from the early '50s.

Don't open those cans! All that good beer's gonna spill on the ceiling!
