Little Cookbooks: The Alan and Shirley Brocker Sliker Culinary Collection

Ceresota Flour


The front of the trade card has a color illustration of a young boy sitting on a stool facing right cutting a loaf of bread. The orange, black and white Ceresota logo is in the upper right corner. The back features suggestions for using Ceresota Flour as well as instructions for removing the printing from the flour sack so it "can then be made over into an article of every-day use in the household." At the bottom is the company's name (The Northwestern Consolidated Milling Co.), capacity produced (18,000 barrels daily), headquarters (Minneapolis, Minn.), and form number and date printed.
