Historical Cooking Books: Metropolitan Cookbook by Metropolitan Life Insurance Company (1964)

June 17th, 2018 No comments

Archive.org has a host of old cookery books (from mid-19th to mid-20th Century) available in many formats and on a host of topics. I happened across a few in my Pinterest feed and gone completely down the rabbit hole in this treasure trove of information. Sure some ideas might be out of date, but you never know what you might find when you explore these books. I’ll be sharing more books as I find them in the coming weeks. –Douglas


Something a little newer this week, but still probably ancient history to our children. If you are looking for that favorite childhood recipe, maybe you’ll find it here. The graphics are so cute and deeply remind me of my own childhood when this style was particularly in fashion. This edition was from the month and year of my birth, so it probably would have been seen in some family or friend’s house while I was growing up. — Douglas

King Tut: Treasures of the Golden Pharaoh

We toured the King Tut Exhibit at the California Science Museum. It is a wonderful exhibit and I will be featuring photos here over the next several weeks. 
You can see the entire collection of King Tut photos on my Flickr and Facebook pages.
