Interesting. My father owned a small grocery in suburban Cincinnati from
the mid-40s until 1972. I remember that when we first got Pepperidge Farm
bread in the 50s it was still shipped by Railway Express (did they ever use
_American_ Express to deliver bread?), and the delivery man would bring it
in in the large boxes in which he had received it. It sold very well, too.
