Rawleigh's.... Medicinal, Personal Hygiene, Extracts and such....

Sometimes I buy things that I find fascinating. Even though this is claiming to be a cookbook. It is more of a sales book for all the products that Rawleigh's sold. The 1955 catalog. Isn't that a darling girl on the front of it. 
It is filled with a month to month layout for the entire year. Of course advertising all of Rawleigh's product's. The month of January is all about the extract's. It also gives pointers about the weather for the month. And believe it or not... it even has a zodiacal map for planting.
And if planting things in the yard is not your thing.... it has a fishing calendar.
How great is that! And here is the best recipe for January....
Fun facts about Rawleigh's History....

"Since 1889, millions of families around the world have learned to rely upon and keep Rawleigh's reliable medicines and other products on hand ready for emergencies to relieve sickness, pains, injuries and for their daily needs. 

For more than 110 years Rawleigh has lead the industry in bringing unique products to the consumer reflecting the latest research and technological findings known to man.
And it was even mailed to a nice lady in a neighboring county of mine....
