Canned goods grown on the farm & Home Ec talks

Some puckish humor from Puck, 1906 - "What we get to eat in the country." Cans of chickens running around the barnyard, fishing for canned salmon, condensed milk in the dairy...



As some of us gather canned goods for yet another snow storm, here is some comic relief. Click to enlarge. Remember Home Ec? Well, there are two upcoming talks, one is this Sunday hosted by CHAA.

"Illustration shows a vignette cartoon showing a country woman harvesting canned fruits and vegetables from "The Quaint Old Kitchen Garden", surrounded with scenes of
a young boy catching canned "Salmon" from a stream filled with other canned fish,
an old man trying to catch cans of chicken running about the farm yard,
a man loading a wagon at the "Freight Depot" with food products shipped from New York, and a
milkmaid at a dairy opening a can of "Condensed Milk" at "Milking Time".
Caption: "Table stocked daily with an abundance of eggs, milk, fresh fish and vegetables."
Puck, v. 59, no. 1534 (1906 July 25), centerfold. Library of Congress
