Pemco Brand Smoked Sardines - Original Version - Maine

SKU: ULB1164 $1.50 USD



Historic Overview

This Pemco Brand Smoked Sardines label is from the 1940s. It is the original version of the brand with a captain in foul weather gear smoking a pipe and large sardines caught in nets on either side. This very colorful label measures 4” Wide x 2.75” High. The sardines were packed in pure olive and this is just a wonderfully striking label.


This sardine label comes from the Sunset Packing Company of West Pembroke, Maine. The Sunset Packing Company started operations in 1900 and was the largest sardine factory in West Pembroke. It also manufactured oils and mustards used to flavor the sardines. The Sunset Packing Co. had to close its doors in 1962 due to competition from Norway.

Happy Kids Georgia Peanut Butter
$2.15
This Happy Kids Peanut Butter, with Bits O’ Nuts, label is from the W.B. Roddenbery Co. in Cairo, Georgia. By the way, if you're from South Georgia that's pronounced “Kay_Row”. The label dates back to 1934 and has a great image of the family enjoying their Happy Kids peanut butter. This label went on an 8 oz. jar and measures 2.15" Wide x 1.75” High in unused near mint condition. Dr. Seaborn Anderson Roddenbery started his medicine practice in 1862 in a horse-drawn buggy. In the same year he purchased a farm and sold open kettle sugar cane syrup from his medical buggy as he made his rounds. By 1867 he had an office and a general store that sold syrup from large cypress barrels, and people would bring their own jars and fill them with his cane syrup. Within five more years he had acquired 1000 acres and started to reduce his medicine practice, since he claimed 90% of his patients didn’t pay him. In 1889 Roddenbery marketed the first pure Georgia cane syrup as "Roddenbery's Old Plantation Molasses." Around 1920 the business became known as the W. B. Roddenbery Company. It was 1934 when the company expanded their product line to include peanut butter in 1936 they added pickles. They continued expanding their products adding boiled peanuts, watermelons, and even cigars under a variety of labels. By 1986, the company was producing 45 kinds of pickles, 12 types of syrups, 4 varieties of peanut butter, and millions of boiled peanuts. In 1993 Dallas-based Dean Foods purchased the W. R. Roddenbery Company and about ten years later they closed the Cairo facilities. WE GUARANTEE OUR LABELS TO BE AUTHENTIC AND AS DESCRIBED!
