Cowdrey's Soups

no preview available


The front of the leaflet shows two blue-green illustrations. On the left side of the front a woman looks over a young girl building a sand castle on the beach. Boats and other beachgoers are seen in the background, along with a menu of the Cowdrey's soups. On the right side of the front a waiter takes the order of a couple. "Cowdrey's Soups" is written on the bottom right corner, while a large pot sits on a fire. A thin ornate frame of dark blue, gilt and blue-green surrounds both scenes. The back of the leaflet is written in red ink and includes promotions for Cowdrey's soups, lunch meats and plum pudding. Two toddlers sit in the bottom left corner holding birds, while in the bottom right corner three kittens dip their heads into a tureen on a table. Flowers and vines are illustrated along the right and left edges.
