Stork Cookery Service Notes No. 28a – 1943

A rather wonderful thing happened a week or two ago and I’ll save that story once I’ve made sure it is OK to tell it. But fast-forward a couple of weeks and I am now the lucky custodian of many original wartime booklets and pamphlets and newspaper clippings which I’m going to share with you over the coming year.

Many of the books I have are very fragile and I will have to scan these in carefully and properly in high-definition to preserve them as it won’t be long before they crumble away but for now I will start with the easier leaflets and clippings which I will just take photos of with my camera. These will be available as individual images below but also a DOWNLOADABLE PDF DOCUMENT HERE. Additionally I will create an archive page to house the complete collection where you will be able to download the PDF’s and enjoy them or share them on your own websites or in your groups or print them out.

Hope you enjoy them and I am looking forward to working my way through the complete collection and sharing something every week. And I’m also looking forward to telling you the full story!

Much love, C xxxx

  1. What a wonderful gift, going to the right person! Thank you for taking the time to do this so all of us can enjoy them! I don’t think a museum would’ve done this. (I sent you a small donation via paypal.)

  2. Hi Carolyn,
    I read some of these things out to Wendy yesterday evening. She was born 19 years after WWII, and 12 years after the end of rationing. Each snippet I read was followed by, “I remember my Grandma doing that”. It led to some interesting conversations
    Thanks you for giving us a very reminiscent and warm evening. Looking forward to more archiving.
    Wendy also has some handwritten books of recipes handwritten by her Grandma, and we also have a Stork Cookbook (not certain how old though)
    Best wishes from Wendy and myself.

  4. Oh, how wonderful that you’ve gotten access to these! And how very kind of you to take the time to scan and share all of these! It’s so wonderful to know that these will be preserved, and better still, that we get to see them! Thanks, as always, for all you do. 🙂
