1935 called, and it wants its cookbook back!

One of my favourite things to collect is old cookbooks. Not so much the "proper" books, but the booklets from magazines, or from shops, or manufacturers. Here's one, from Crofts Stores in Melbourne, picked up at a garage sale. It's from 1935. Crofts prided themselves in having over 100 grocery stores around Melbourne and the country areas, all with personal service. Here's a cool page - they promise that, when you send your child to do some shopping, they will send the change home in a sealed envelope. Now that's service! Why get dressed, indeed?

Want more? I have more good pages to share. Endless amusement, well worth the 20c or so I spend on these things...
