    The preface is signed "S. N. R" and thanks contributors for their recipes. The text is all cookery except for household hints on pages 86-88.
    Dr Kay Flavel of The University of Liverpool has kindly checked the advertisements in the book against "Gore's street directory" and reports that the year for which they correspond exactly is 1914. Interestingly, many of the advertisements are for firms in Lark Lane, Aigburth Road and Park Road which are part of a particular neighbourhood in Liverpool.
