Vintage cook books

If you enjoy looking through cook books, here are some interesting early twentieth century examples. What's fascinating about some of these is how the culture of food changes over the years. While some recipes remain constant, others seem quite bizarre in retrospect. I also love having a few vintage cook books in my kitchen to remind me of my mom and grandmother.
