Little Cookbooks: The Alan and Shirley Brocker Sliker Culinary Collection

Thompson Street Echoings [49]


The front of this trade card has a color watercolor drawing and excerpt from "Thompson Street Echoings" which ran in PUCK magazine. The drawing has two Aftican-American men standing in front of a doorway talking as a young boy behind them listens. An excerpt of their conversation is printed below them. 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.
