Little Cookbooks: The Alan and Shirley Brocker Sliker Culinary Collection

Lactated Food


This Trade Cards has four panels. The first panel has the company's trademark of two farm scenes in interlocking circles above a blue-eyed blonde child peeking through torn paper. The second panel shows a plump baby on the floor beside a vase of flowers. The third panel blue-winged nymph near a marsh luring butterflies with a fife. The fourth panel shows a child holding a spoon while standing in an empty can of Lactated Food. The back of each panel has promos, physician's statements, and testimonials.
