We forget that back then, eating out was considered a luxury, not often done in most families. If we had dinner out once a month, that was rare--and there was a cafe on the family resort grounds (which is where we would usually go). Packing a meal to eat on an outing was normal. On trips we would eat lunch "on the tailgate." If we had our "travel trailer" (an 18' job that would sleep 5 with a stove and an icebox!) we would have groceries (or buy them enroute) and eat in the trailer, or use the trailer as the kitchen and eat at a picnic table.
Packing a hamper of food on a family outing was just normal back then; even in the days of 15 hamburgers!
