    1. 50 pound bags, Inger! Oh my! I don't think I could use 50 pounds of flour in a year! My daughter, however, could for sure! Thanks for visiting, Inger...

  12. Love these illustrations. Typical advertising for the early third of the 20th century. I remember a booklet on Wrights Silver Cream featuring a cow who fell into the magic mud (Wright's Silver Cream) and its bell was cleaned til it sparkled. I may try to look that one up online.
    Have a blessed evening.

    1. Hi Anne,
      I have not tried this brand of flour. To be perfectly honest, I'm not sure they weren't "gobbled" up my another company. It is one of the things I would like to research before I share the rest of the book. Thank you so much for asking, Anne...
