Do you know what makes pie shops tick?

Last week we posted this great photo from the Miller Stockman fall 1969 catalog, courtesy of a visually-pleasing smorgasboord of vintage advertising called “What Makes Pie Shops Tick.”

“Pie Shops” highlights some of unique offerings of the truly vast collection of photos on Flickr, including additional photos from this catalog.  Some of the many categories include entire scrapbooks of unknown personages from the olden days (e.g.), vintage advertisement for every conceivable product from clothes to cigarettes to cars, and a huge set of travel and motel postcards from the 1950s and 1960s.  It is a truly phenomenal and wide-ranging assemblage that documents What We Looked Like and What We Liked.  Nothing like looking at the old-timey history of strangers to make one think of the old-timey history of one’s own people.
