I have a question--what are the items for sale stacked on the counter at left, and the cylindrical thingies for sale ("2 for 25 cents") in wire bin below? Any ideas? Can't be Pringles--"can't eat just one"--they weren't invented until the 1960s. What would really be strange is if there was an open laptop computer on the counter. Twilight Zone stuff.
My guess would be oatmeal, or maybe salt. Both have traditionally been packaged in cylindrical cannisters, though flat, rectangular boxes would make more sense.
