Anyone for BISCUITS?

MrCachet, from Old Paper Art, gifted me this wonderful 1902 Royal Baking Powder booklet. I love both illustrations. And I love those cheery buttery biscuits!

The Royal Baking Powder Company was one of the largest producers of baking powder in the US. It was started by both Joseph Christoffel Hoagland and William Ziegler in 1866. In 1929 the Royal Baking Powder Co. along with four other companies including the Fleischmann's Yeast Company merged to form Standard Brands, the number two brand of packaged foods in America after General Foods.

  1. I'm glad you liked it! Using the words of my Grandfather to describe Grandma's biscuits, "I'd say these are Powerful Good". I love the advertising illustrations. They get me every time.

    1. I do love all that you sent. And it's so sad to think virtually none of the original art survived.
