The lead-in reads

A fantastic fruit loaf that is a favorite of both Mrs. Helen Barrot of California and Pauline Bogush of Connecticut and should really please Mary Frambach of New Hampshire.

Helen Barrot was born on 25 Jul 1912 and died on 7 Jun 1999. Pauline Bogush was born 8 Mar 1921 in Holyoke, Maine and died 20 Jan 2006 in Hartford, Connecticut, USA. It appears that Mary Frambach is still living, therefore, no information regarding her other than what is listed above will be shared.

Based on the above, the recipe had to have been printed prior to 1999.

Vintage Kitchen Tools and Dishes

I love vintage dishes and kitchenware. 

On the weekends I can often be found in a thrift store poking through the shelves to find vintage treasures to use as props for our photography for the site.

Vintage Cookbooks

Every once and a while you can find a good cookbook with Vintage Recipes on Amazon. I don’t have any recommendations as I haven’t bought any as I prefer the handwritten recipes that you see on our site.

You can always find treasures on sites that sell used items such as Vintage Cookbooks on eBay and Vintage Cookbooks on Etsy
