I believe that what you have found is a package of flares that were intended to be carried by trucks over 10,000 lb GVWR (ones whose operation was regulated by the Interstate Commerce Commission). These were, I believe, intended to be lit and placed behind a disabled truck at the side of the road - to warn oncoming drivers of its' presence.

I'm unsure of the vintage, but would guess at anywhere between just before ww2 up to the early 1960s.

Does this make any sense judging from whatever you can read on the packaging?

This is exactly what I had in mind when I wrote my previous post. The photos and text clearly confirm what I'd suspected.
