Out to lunch

This is half of the lunch-box display in the Sheets Center for the Arts at the L.A. County Fair, described in my Sunday column.

The photo is a thumbnail; click on the image for a much larger view so you can eyeball the boxes in loving detail.

Did you ever own one of these, or another? (For the record, I had a “Peanuts” vinyl lunchbox.)

Perhaps the most curious of the bunch is the one with the Kellogg’s Frosted Flakes logo and Tony the Tiger. Is this a lunch box or a breakfast box?

More lunch boxes, including the Beatles and “Gentle Ben,” are in the other half of the faux lunch box case. You’ll have to go to the Fair yourself to see those.
