25 Vintage Water Cooler Cups Cone Cups from the 1960s with Safety Slogans
Twenty-five, vintage water cooler cups, paper, water cooler cups with three different safety slogans on them.
The slogans are:
1. “Safety. A good think (sic) to keep in mind — Knowledge+Caution=Safety.” This one has an owl on one side and a nurse pointing to a chalkboard on the other.
2. “Your future depends on your safety — Safety is your own look-out.” One side has a Swami, the other an all-seeing eye.
3. “Do you realize that your safety is largely in your own hands? — Aware, Alert, Alive!” One side has hands holding the phrase, “In your own hands.” The other side is simply the words, “aware, alert and alive.”
The cups, which are snow cone size, are 3-1/2″ high. There is some soiling around the edge of a few. Otherwise, they are clean and not smashed.
I believe these were most likely used at a water cooler in Avondale Mills in Sylacauga, Alabama. They were found at the estate of a couple who worked there their entire adult lives, up until retirement in the 1990s.
