This cookbook was compiled and published by
the Ladies Aid Society, Central Church of Christ, Greenfield, Ohio. The
book contains no copyright date but based on the various advertisers, I'd
estimate it was published during the 1930s. Because of space, I'll not
scan the entire book and the several pages of advertisers. It was one of
the items sold at F.R. Harris' estate sale.
