Here is one for those guys on American Pickers who are always looking for oil cans. I am going to guess the blue embellishment was done by a proud little girl who had a calico blue dress. Dad is also proud, he is living the American Dream. Mom, not Mcdonald's would make the sandwiches, and I'm going to guess once in a while give one to a passerby who was hitching. Who would think 75 years later the petroleum companies would be so hated they have to spend millions of dollars on "image advertising" to make us think they are still the good guys.
