Food Friday: Fried Green Tomatoes and 1921 Automobiles

For this Food Friday I am featuring one of my favorite dishes, Fried Green Tomatoes.

This recipe from the Women's Guild of of the Second Church of West Newton (1921) is entitled Recipes Tested by the Families of the Parish and Compiled by the Women's Guild. It is found in the Cookbooks and Home Economics  section of Internet Archive.

What's interesting about this cookbook is that it has quite a few ads for cars that include prices. Two are shown below, but there are so many more in the cookbook including models from Ford, Chevy, Cadillac, Reo, Oakland Six, and Waltham. Want to know what a car cost in 1921? Check out this cookbook!

And of course there are other types of ads as well including this one for ice.
