My Dad was certified as an Eagle Scout in 1956. This sardine tin top was in a pile of scouting related items he saved. I’m glad he saved it. I like the artwork on it. I also like sardines a lot (although I’m relieved the commemorative Jamboree Special tin top was not attached to the commemorativeJamboree Special sardines when I found it). Maine’s sardine industry will be the topic of a future blog post in the Business of Maine Features section.

Do you like sardines? I heard on a podcast that sardines are brain food. I’m going with that.
