The All Gas Kitchen. The Bride's Choice


The front cover has a light blue background. There is a picture of a woman showing a friend and her husband the Detroit Jewel Gas Range and water heater. On the left there is an oval frame with a picture of a young woman with three pink roses behind the upper left corner of the frame. The dealer's name The Charles A. Hall Hardware Co., 115 S. Race St., Urbana, Illinois is stamped below that. The back cover is plain white. The front end page has information on gas being a time and labor saver. The pamphlet has a story of a bride to be wishing for a kitchen that is dainty, sweet, and clean. There are line drawings to go along with the story line and photographs of Jewel Gas Ranges. The last page has a picture of the factory, the world's largest stove plant. The back end page has information on the new metal with four times the rust-resisting qualities of ordinary steel. There are no page numbers.
