The front cover of the pamphlet features text reading How Things Have Changed Since Mother Was A Girl, with a color drawing of a delivery boy in a checked hat, carrying a basket, and handing a loaf of bread to a woman who appears to be a grandmother. The back cover has a color drawing of a boy eating a slice of bread while his dog looks on, anticipating that the boy will share his slice. There is no text on the back cover. In addition to recipes on inside pages, the first page features a black and white photograph of Schmidt's Bread Bakery, noted later as The Home Of Holsum Bread. The page notes that Visitors Are Always Welcome. Pages 3-11 includes an article titled Good Bread-Making, complete with black and white photographs and drawings. Recipes are organized according to: Fish and Meat Dishes; Savories and Meat Dishes; Toast, Vegetables and Savories; and Puddings, Tarts and Muffins. Note, as the bottom of page 2 is a copyright date of 1916, followed by text, The W.E. Long Co.
