Description

"This manual can sealer was used to seal metal cans of food sent to relatives in Germany after World War II. Care packages with food were a major charity activity in the Whitewater community. My father freely sealed cans for anyone in the community. Even peppernuts were sent in sealed cans to keep them fresh because transit time to Germany could take up to three months." - Melvin Epp
