Here's something fun: a can of smog from 1957


These were apparently sold in the Fun Shop at Farmers Market and produced by Carlton (or Carleton) Young's Los Angeles Smog Corp.  Hal Tamblin was listed as a vice president, according to a 1962 item in The Times. Art Ryon, author of The Times "Ham on Ryon" column claimed to be an executive of this whimsical outfit.

I found it on EBay
