Vintage pressure canner

We're checking out a '70s vintage Presto pressure canner tonight. No telling the last time it was used.

The instructions recommend having the pressure gauge checked by a county extension agent or a vocational school if in doubt that it's working. There are also special instructions for use on coal or wood stoves.

Tag on the box says it was bought at Richway for $29.95.

Richway was originally a discount division of Atlanta's old Rich's department store.  Richway stores were later sold to Federated Department Stores and were then sold again and rebranded as Target stores in 1989.
