The back panel features three black and white photographs of the Nesco Steam Cooker, headlining the accompanying text as It's A Miracle Of Convenience. A sales representative's name is stampled below: Harrison Wholesale Co., 849 W. Washington Blvd., Chicago, Ill., Haymarket 1342. Other panels include promotional text, photographs and black and white drawings for the Nesco Roastmaster.
