1937 Blantyre Cookery Book

1937 Blantyre Cookery Book

From a small Blantyre published 1937 cookery book. Gran Mary Danskin had kept this obviously to refer back to the recipes.

These ads are all in Blantyre Glasgow or Stonefield Road. Allisons at number 281 the joiners, Youngs fruits, flowers and confections at 143, Whittle’s the butchers at 202 and of course Cafe de Royal (Mickeys!) at 1 Stonefield at Glasgow Rd junction. Love the description “Our Ice cream is made with the latest type of iceless freezer, phone Blantyre 142”. It also confirms Cafe de Royal was established 1906.

Anybody fancy making these cakes?
