Thank you to my Facebook friend Kayleen, who tagged me in a post this morning as she had found a volume of wartime recipe books in a Manchester Photographic Archive on Flickr. This is exciting! I can almost smell the pages!
A volume of recipes dating to World War Two. The folder contains manuscript, typescript, and printed recipes, and booklets of recipes published by Birds, Good Housekeeping, Ministry of Food, Van den Bergh & Jergens Limited and the Women’s Gas Council.
Forms part of the Garner family of Manchester’s collection in the Documentary Photographic Archive. Donated by Doris Henderson of Australia, 1997.
