Came across your photos on Flickr on the Baking Group. Wonderful photos. They remind me of the Canadian magazines my Aunt Zena would send to my Mum here in Scotland. Our own magazines in the 1950s never had the beautiful glossy coloured pages of the Canadian and American mags.

My brother and I would leaf through the mags. pretending to take slices of the Mary Baker cakes.

Thank you for bringing back the memory.
