I recently watched the 1937 classic film A Star is Born for the first time.
One of the things that struck me was this shot of the main character Esther/Vicki holding a platter of food (when she was doing a gig as a catering waitress).
This is food styling in 1937! Totally different aesthetic from today's splattered ever so casually on a rustic piece of wood aesthetic.
Also the parsley falling out of the orange (looking a bit like pacman) is very amusing to me.
You can watch the whole movie on Youtube because it is now a public domain film.
And when you're done you can also read the original film review from 1937 (the film debuted in NYC) and see if you agree.
