Corned beef.

More stuff around home as I'm a bit busy just now. This style of tin is going to be obsolete soon and will be replaced by ring-pull ....
Nice collage, Elizabeth. Making me hungry!! I have never seen that here in our grocery stores. Looks yummy, though.

Yes the ring-pull once are so much easier to open.most of the cans may it be vegetables or fruits when we were in Germany had already the ring-pull once not so here in our stores. corned-beef makes a nice lunch.

you can't beat a lovely corned beef & tomato sandwich. Shame the tins are going to be replaced - though I must admit, about 1 in 5 times the metal snaps, and you're left to complete the dangerous opening operation with a couple of knives and forks/whatever else comes to hand.

I have not seen this type can in a long time but I do recall my parents buying canned hams. We would take them camping with us. Nice collage.

Really?! But half the fun of corned beef is the key to open it. :-(

Lol food and more food! I always view your pics on an empty stomach ( should be warning on them) Another great composite of corned beef pics!

Corned Beef and Cabbage? I love it.

Hmmm...not something that I like to eat. Yet, I love your capture of it. Great photographs!

I agree with Carla. Not something I would like to eat. Looks a lot like Spam. My experiences with those tins were with peanut cans, large hams and with sardine cans. I always used to end up with a pair of pliers trying to pull the remaining metal band.

What a nice photo! Elizabeth, you really find interesting things in the every-day life - and that is a great gift!

I have not had canned corn beef since I was a little boy. Your pictures made me first think of Spam.

Ditto what Joe Ciras said. Those cans have been obsolete in the states for a while now.

Nice theme pic and I will miss the "old style" cans!

Fantastic! I had a great corned beef for lunch today! I love your collage!

As children we used to fight over who was going to open the sardine tin because of the key.

looks like our SPAM!

A shame those style cans are going obsolete. I hadn't seen one in a long, long time.

LOVE corned beef,never been able to get the hang of those tins though :-)

Yes we used to use this when our 5 were younger. My Husband loved it , most likely still does if I was still buying it. Now I cook my own corn beef and love it too.

Great collage, Elizabeth, but oh how foreign this all looks and how absolutely fascinating it all is! Like others have mentioned, I have seen SPAM come in a can such as this, but not corned beef. I have also not seen a can open with a key since I was a kid. And that, my friends, is WHY I love 365 so much. We get to see all the wonderful variety of everyday life around the world.

My reaction to your picture will be unexpected...it gives me shivers to look at it! Years ago when I was still in my teens, I was opening a can like this, and then I pulled the two pieces apart I sliced my thumb on the lid portion. My parents were away, and the sitter didn't want to take me to get sitiches. Ugly scene... So I still have a thing about corned beef in tins...and think a pull-tab might be a good idea!

@Weezilou My sister did exactly the same thing and still (40 years later) has the scar! She uses tin opener and opens both ends and pushes the contents out now.... won't even use the ring pull!! Can understand the reaction to seeing the tin!

I say aside from the novelty, I am glad these cans have been replaced. They were so frustrating, especially when the long metal strip came off its track. I notice how many comments your picture evoked. We all love to dip back into our memories and it's even more fun to share them. Good job.
