Figure 192. Pints of canned food

As early as 1940, these jars of preserved food sat on a shelf in the old dairy in the back yard of the Gregg/Wallace home.  Presumably, they were preserved by the residents of that house; however, the people who lived in the hewn-timber houses were doing similar canning, so the jars were donated to the hewn-timber cabins collection.  While the jars have been in the collection since it was first assembled, they are shown here in four photos with descriptive names to identify the various jars for cataloguing purposes.  From left to right, the three pint jars are: Ball Perfect Mason with old fashioned lid and red rubber gasket, Ball Perfect Mason with flat top, and Atlas Mason with flat top.  (Photo 2005)
