Historical information

Pamphlets enclosed are old eg. when flourless recipes were a novelty, when Victa lawnmowers and steam irons were new and when bottling fruit was done using Fowler's bottling kits.


Families in the Kiewa Valley cooked at home as access to eating out wasn't available locally. Items that made living easier were becoming more common.
