Two Tide Water oil Cans I recently got, the red, white and blue Can was a Christmas gift and I love it, but... I think it might be a repro fantasy piece as I can find no records of this Company in Mathews,VA. maybe one of you know for sure? The Orange and Black Tydol Can I believe is original 1940's and in nice shape, a new one for my collection. Enjoy

    Using the name Tide water wouldn't be such a good marketing choice today, images of the Gulf oil spill would most likely come to mind ;-)

    you have the great mystery!!!!!!!!!!!!!That's all I could find!being able to buy these at the Cracker Barrel makes me suspicious.
