The front side has a snow covered shoe with three chicks in it. The words around the shoe are: The birds sing the praises of "Crosby's Superior" flour Do, Se, Do; dough baked up makes bread; we like it warm, we like it cold, we like it even when it's nine days old and it's best when it's made from "Superior" we're told, try it if you like good bread. Made only by Valley City Milling Co., Grand Rapids, Mich. The back side is blank.
