Place of Origin

Maker T.A. Snider Preserve Co.

Maker Details According to an 1888 article cited by Betty Zumwalt in “Ketchup, Pickles, Sauces,” the T. A. Snider Preserve Company was founded in 1879. Shown here are three examples of ephemeral advertising the company produced to promote their various products. While the company began in Cincinnati, Ohio, the 1920s vintage ad shows a ketchup bottle and bean can with labels indicating the company was then located in Chicago, Illinois.
