Cinco de Mayo: 1925

Cinco de Mayo: 1925

Washington, D.C., circa 1925. "Semmes Motor Co. -- Hellmann's truck." Back when mayonnaise delivery was a thing. 8x10 inch glass negative. View full size.

Today’s Top 5

The urns are still there

Right behind the truck is 1107 Buchanan St NW. 1109 Buchanan to the left. Alley and garage on the right still there too.

There can only be one

The only REAL mayo is Duke's Mayonnaise. If your store doesn't have it, you need to move more southeast 8-) All other mayo pales in comparison, even home made.

Store-door delivery

From a 1944 Hellmann's ad:

HAM

Quite an elaborate antenna on the one house,....must be a Ham radio operator lives there!

Truck ID

Dodge Brothers.

The DC stuff was okay

But I always preferred Virginia Mayo.

Mayonnaise to your door

Nice and warm.

Bet you've been waiting a while to post this one today!

Also, I wish mayo home delivery was still a thing.
