Friday, April 17, 1914: Nothing much doing today.
Her middle-aged granddaughter’s comments 100 years later:
Since Grandma didn’t write much a hundred years ago today, I’ll share a hundred-year-old advertisement for Underwood Deviled Ham.
According to Wikipedia, the William Underwood Company first made deviled ham in 1868.
The devil logo was trademarked in 1870 and it is the oldest food trademark still in use in the United States. The red devil that debuted in 1895 and started as a demonic figure who evolved into a much friendlier version when compared to the original.
Sometimes I’m amazed which foods have lasted for more than a hundred years.
