|Scope & Content||
Booklet: Baker's Coconut Recipes. Copyright 1922 The Franklin Baker Co. (Philadelphia, PA.) Printed pamphlet, 4-1/8" x 6" high, 12 pp plus covers. Color covers and illustrations.
While not created by Franklin Baker in Hoboken, it is held as an example of how the company marketed its product prior to coming to Hoboken in 1924. Only 12 pages (and three are devoted to other matter, product description and two with full page color illustrations), it is useful to see the establishment of standard recipes for using coconut.
"About Coconut" on page  described the two types offered and its labeling: the BLUE can has fresh coconut packed in it own milk; the YELLOW can has fresh coconut without the milk and sweetened with cane sugar. (The back cover has depictions of the two differently labeled cans.) See objects 2010.007.0171 for a 1922 copyright yellow label refering to a recipe booklet which is probably this one.
