Here's an interesting article attached to the page - I have three of these books and think I must have picked up this one at a yard or book sale.
A year ago my 10-year-old niece did her heritage fair project on Bread Making - she illustrated the various ways and techniques used by the early settlers, etc. - here's a photo of her by one of the old stoves. My father said he remembered his grandmother, Annie (Boyle) Cannon, having a stove like this - that was in the late 1930's. My niece won first prize for her project at her elementary school then won at the provincial heritage fair.
