St. Charles Evaporated Milk
The seven-piece puzzle advertizes St. Charles Evaporated Cream, with the pieces featuring odd angles that do not appear to easily assemble into a "whole." On the front of each piece is a color illustration, each representing a different aspect of life, presumably in the early 1900s. Illustrations are accompanied by a phrase tied to the setting of the drawings. On the back of each piece is a four-line advertising message for the product. When assembled the puzzle is 16.5 squared and is diamond shape in orientation.
