My favorite Cracker Jacket photo, lots of Chums boxes!

Post by Stewart Callner » Tue Apr 28, 2009 8:04 am

Hi All,
Here's my favorite Cracker Jack photo. I believe there are ten boxes of Chums showing. This is a very weird photo, and I have no idea of what's going on here, or who or what this is... Any ideas?
I will post a few details of this as well.

Charming picture, Stewart. I think it is a family photo. All the children resemble each other somewhat. The mom, who is in the back row, seems annoyed with the young man sitting to her right. He isn't holding a box of Chums. Maybe that is why she is giving him the evil eye. :evil: And the boy in the front row has his fingers inserted in what looks to be a toilet paper cardboard roll. What is that all about? :???:

Great Photo. :D

Detail of box

Hi Diane,
I see how it looks like a small roll, but actually it's a side panel of a Chums box.
I counted it as one of the 10 I found.

Hi, Stewart :hiya:

Great to see you join us here on the CJCA forum! :poke: :flowers:

Anyway, I really like this photo of all the Chums holding Chums! :humbsip:

One of those girls wearing sailor suits must have eated all her Chums and wants more, look at that frown! :( :laughing:

This photo looks like a club or school class picture to me. :gossip:

I wonder what prizes they received in their Chums boxes! :D

Oh thank you for the closeup showing that the toilet tissue roll is actually a sideview of a Chums box. :oops: I am so embarrassed to have made such a silly error. I feel about as smart as one of the Stooges. :stooges: Well, I'm glad that little boy received a box of Chums along with his friends and not just a toilet paper role. :confused:

Great photo Stewart! I wish it were mine!

It looks to me that this is some sort of class outing and they got a Chums treat on the way. It also looks like they are in front of a theatre background.

It surprises me that no one is holding a prize. It is an early photo and maybe there were no prizes in the boxes.

Thanks for sharing!

Hi, Ron :hiya:

What do you mean no prizes, those three girls shown in the front of the picture are showing off their doll prizes, I think! :insane:

The close-up thead of the Chums boxes shows that these boxes were all "Prize Package" ones. :ugeek:
