Are they beer cans???
I don't think so but it is too difficult to say conclusively. However, the ones in the upper left might be.

Is that a Fehrs case in the rear???
Yes, I am positive it is. It even appears to say Kentucky on it.
Focus: Cones and flats from Michigan, South Bend, and Fort Wayne. Foreign cans only if I bought them myself in the country of origin.

The cans on the left look like Blue and Gold to me. I wonder if they are WF?

They are not Blue 'n Gold although that was my first thought on seeing them. The design is wrong and they would not be in Alabama. No idea what they are or if even beer but the cans look like the right size and shape.

There are more Fehr's boxes below. If you look in the gap between the middle soldier's elbow and body, you can see where it says Louisville on a box underneath.

That pinball machine would be worth a few bucks in today's market.
