Vintage coffee tins

I love these 40's and 50's coffee tins from Roadsidepictures' (US photographer, Allen) collection of vintage packaging and advertising on Flickr. There's so much to look at, this is definitely one of those sets you need a lot of time and a cuppa to really enjoy.

Allen says he's always enjoyed, "photographing old neon signs, cars, motels, gas stations, roadside attractions and suburban life" - all of which can be seen in his Flickr sets.

See more vintage packaging here, here and here or have a rumage through our reference box here.
