Minnie Holsinger, The Farmer's Wife 53, Manor Bakers, Henry Hintermeister

This is blog #53 of my on-going series sharing pages from the scrap book of Minnie Holsinger, which she compiled in the 30s and 40s while she and Grandpa Charlie were saving to buy a farm.
This illustration is from a series of images I assume that were culled by Grandma Minnie from a calendar produced by Manor Bakers in the late 30’s or early 40’s. The work is credited to Henry Hintermeister, who’s work has been featured in the Farmers Wife blog series posts 2, 5, 31, 32, & 33. Mr. H was a popular and prolific illustrator back in the day, but is now all but unknown; at least, I’d never heard or seen of him until I started working on this series.
