Libby's Happy Families

 I love these vintage promotional cards for Libby's canned goods. I only class them as curious objects because of the weird characters they have created, with their tin can bodies, and heads of fruit and so on. Enjoy!

A cow with a body made of a corned beef tin is definitely a curious object.

 I was going to point out a case of the cannibal animal - as Mr Libby's Salmon is going fishing, but salmon do eat smaller fish and krill, so I suppose it's actually quite authentic. Apart from the hat. Salmon generally prefer a trilby hat.
