Comments On Article: The Diary Of Sarah January 24 -30 1943
Does anyone know what Sarah means by, "Stored some cans in the attic?" Surely not cans of food, as the temperature swings would make an attic about the worst possible place for that. Empty cans for recycling, maybe? But that would seem inconvenient, to put them up in an attic, only to have to haul them down again soon. Maybe she is calling something else - like empty cookie tins - cans?
Grandma Donna wrote, Tea S I had to do some researching to make sure but the answer was as I thought it might be. During the 1930s, when doing home canning they used Jars or Cans to do their canning. Seems the attic would be a good place to store them and the attic could have been a walk up type of attic as well. People still can with jars and cans today.
