I can’t resist stepping back in time, particularly if an object is as lovely as this. The “Campus Queen” steel lunch box was made in 1967. It even included a thermos flask (mine no longer has this, and it is showing its age, but I love it just the same). Great illustrations of student life on the sides, and on the back, a game takes you from study hall to the prom, with stops at the Soda Fountain, Movies, and Beauty parlour.
Thanks to YouTube, you can also spot it in the music video for Cyndi Lauper’s 1984 number one hit, “Time After Time.”
Have a happy September!
