i noticed a couple are set to appear in a local auction , there from a really small town north of where i live . not sure how old they are exactly , there metal food cans for things like flour or baking powder but feature no name brands and have paper labels

but on the back there marked as being from that town , and give the name on an old store that once existed there years ago , i think they each have different store names on the back but same town . since i'm not familar with that area not sure when those stores would of closed but thinking a long time ago .

appeared to be really old , i can't even recall seeing anything similar , but thinking they must be pre 1920's if not even earlier .

can post some pictures of them in a couple days when they are listed online but don't have any now

they just appeared online , it appears there tin cans with paper labels on them

are brands on them - Perfect Baking Powder , Maple Leaf Baking Powder and Thistle Brand baking Powder and are marked on back as being from stores in that area ( Magnetawan and Burks Falls ) , Magnetawan a very small town on a lake , been there for a while as an old road passed thru it that lead up north

tried searching them on google and came back with nothing
