Maternity Corset Ads and Cooking Ideas

Maternity Corset Ads and Cooking Ideas

Flattr this!

This entry is part 1 of 14 in the series The Modern Priscilla - July 1913

Honestly, the best thing about these pages are the advertisements. I think I lost brain cells even skimming the cooking advice. It’s probably why I’m such a bad cook- this kind of writing bores me to tears. The advertisements are cool though! These pages contained a small ad for maternity corsets, which I found particularly interesting.

Also advertised were canned sardines, The Alaska Freezer, Jello, Coffee Jelly, Maternity Apparel, Karo Syrup, Hair Dye, and a variety of “Make Money from Home” ads.

Professional WordPress nerd. Lover of all things older than me. I am fascinated by early 1900s labor and feminist history, and have a sporadic addiction to reading nonfiction about those things on Archive.org. I scan old photographs and ephemera when I get really super bored. On Etsy I sell vintage clothing that I got as part of an interesting trade deal a few years ago.
