Little Cookbooks: The Alan and Shirley Brocker Sliker Culinary Collection

Washington [78]


The front of this trade card has a map of Washington on the right and a color drawing of a lumbering scene on the left. At the bottom is the area and population of Washington. The back of the card has Arbuckles' Ariosa Coffee with four reasons why it "is worth more than other brands of coffee" even though it costs more. There is also a warning about some coffee manufacturers deceiving consumers with what their coffee is actually made of. On the right side is a description of the series of trade cards which are included in every package of Arbuckle's Coffee.
