No. 23. Vintage Matson container a veritable time-capsule

Forty bucks can yield a lot of things: A week's worth of groceries. Five bowls of pho. In March of 2007, it bought me a trip to Hilo on the island of Hawaii for a day. Because of that, I caught this vintage Matson container, a far cry from the Helveticaesque Matson we know and love today. Given that Helvetica was designed in 1957, and popularized in the sixties by the Swiss, anyone care to guess at the age of this guy?
