[HANDWRITTEN] [DOMESTIC] Composition Book of Grocery Lists from Late 60's

Seattle: 1968-70. Hardcover. 96 pages. 21 x 17 cm. Composition book used for grocery lists from February 1968 to march 1970. Very legible handwriting, in cursive. Interesting look into the buying habits of an American household in the late 1960's. The household ate a fairly repetitive diet that included: Folger's Drip Coffee, Pepperidge Farm White Bread, Carnation Instant Breakfast Drink, Grapenuts, Club soda, Juice Oranges, Tree Top Apple Juice, Grape Juice, Uncle Ben's Rice, and carton's of Philip Morris Regular cigarettes. These items were rounded out by bacon, lamb, top round, pork chops, and other meat purchases. There are over 20 receipts from Village Foods Grocery Dept., loose grocery lists laid-in, and a couple of cut-out recipes. A fun acquisition for those interested in personal accounts of diet from the near past. Binding loose, with a couple of pages torn out. Leaves are toned and boards rubbed, with a 1" rip in the center of spine. Green felt covered boards, maroon cloth spine. Good. Item #2549

Price: $50.00
