    Was your dad an Ohio native, Dan? My Dad is in his 80's and still lives up in Michigan... I could show him the photo and ask if he recognizes the cups.

    the white glasses look like "milk glass" and was from the era of carnival glass. Most milk glass, if I remember correctly, was made from the 40's through the 60's. The tin cup I have no idea about. Try going to Ebay and type in milk glass and do a search see if you can find some info. Good luck

    I am not sure, but it looks like an old sinclar cup. I seem to remember something like those from my childhood. But like I said, I am not real sure about it!!

    I remember the Grog fella, it was a Marathon Gas ( I think that is the right Gas station) promotion back in the early 70's, I grew up in dayton and remember those in some of my earliest memories

    Cool stuff!
