Just recently lucky enough to win this (and others) on eBay. Probably late 1940's early 1950's. View full size.

Cash Register

The cash register is a National Cash Register Class 1900. It has 5 clerk keys on the left to identify the clerk recording the sale. There 4 department keys on the right; I can see two are identified as Cash and Refund. This cash register did not do itemization so each item was entered into the adding machine at the left of the register then the total entered into the register.

Kruger Dairy

At the top of what appears to be a price list affixed to the cash register. The second line says something about prices, and the third gives a date, possibly Sept. 1, perhaps a year in the 1950s?

Product placement

Interesting that a couple brands of toothpaste are mixed in with the tobacco products.

And man, why is it so hard to find canned ham these days?
