Vintage photos of:
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.
