My Favorite Watering Can

This is my favorite watering can because it belonged to my parents and everytime I use it I think of them.
I am not sure when it was purchased other than I am pretty sure is was when we lived in West Los Angeles, so it would have been purchased prior to our move to Santa Monica in 1971. I see whenever it was, it only cost $3.75.
Here is a close up of the label. It is falling apart and I attempted to clear coat it on to the can, not sure that will work, but I have a photo of it anyway! Could be possible to date it by the label, not sure.

That is all for now, it still works GREAT and I used it Sunday to water our whiskey barrels.

Hey! I used to live in West L.A. Only it was in the 90s. It would be interesting to find out the history of the can.

Love your watering can. I have a very old one from my father in law and just love it. They're no longer $3.75 at the antique markets!
