72 hour kits--circa 1957


When you help clean out your in-law's house, which they built in 1966 and spent the rest of their lives in, you never know what you might find lurking in dark corners.

Behold, the 1957 Perma-Pak Survival Kit.

All I really have to say is that the 1957 concept of  "perma" packing something was not what it is today. Not by a long shot. I'll let you just imagine how well the food stuffs were preserved in that thing...Not as bad as you might think, but kinda smelly.

It's interesting to see how times change, isn't it?
