Frosted Foods: 1935

Frosted Foods: 1935

Washington, D.C., circa 1935. "Interior of D.G.S. Store, 3300 Connecticut Avenue, Cathedral Mansions." An interesting look at some Birdseye Packing Co. "Frosted Foods." View full size. 8x10 safety negative, National Photo Co. Note that by 1935, National Photo has made the jump from glass to film as a recording medium. Resulting in a more modern, contrastier look but a little less detail.

D.G.S. Celebrates 15th Anniversary

District Grocery Stores, Inc., is celebrating the fifteenth anniversary of its founding. The organization has grown into a co-operative with 265 member store spreading from Rockville, Md., on the north, to Manassas, Va., on the south, and from Riverdale, Md., on the east to Glen Echo Md., on the west.

Each District Grocery Store is operated by its owner. Stores offer such free services as telephone shopping service, free delivery and credit extension whenever it is necessary.

The D.G.S. maintains a warehouse at Fourth and D streets southwest, where only members may purchase groceries, meats, fresh fruits and vegetables, eggs, dairy products, beverages, tobacco and candy. Sales to members last year totaled more then $5,000,000. Sales this year are expected to exceed $6,000.000.

So many products and brand names that many of us early baby boomers long thought were post-WW2 creations made just in time for us!
