Description Baker's Moist Sweetened Coconut. 4 Oz. Net. Manufactured by Franklin Baker Co., Philadelphia, PA. Label Copyright 1922. Printed paper, 2 sides, 3-11/16" high x ca. 8-1/2" wide.

The company would relocate operations to Hoboken in the mid-1920s and thereafter products would be labeled "Hoboken, N.J." This label for a metal can (original can not present) is useful for comparison with cans depicted in advertising and actual can labels from the Hoboken period.

It is also noteworthy that the label was printed two sides with recipes on the inside. It also has text: "Free: Write our Philadephia Office for Recipe Booklet Illustrated in Color." (See archives 2011.005.0003 for a copy of this booklet.)
