Ready for a Deep Dive into the World of Butter, c. 1880-1920?

Do read on!  Pardon the long post - can you tell summer break has started? :D




There are numerous dairies, all of them using butter color.  What's that, you ask?


CONTROVERSY ERUPTS!

THE PROS




THE CONS


THE PLAYERS:

WELLS, RICHARDSON & CO. a.k.a. "The Kind That Has No Mud." <-- actual slogan







DANDELION BUTTER COLOR (Made by Wells, Richardson & Co.)





CHARLES HANSEN'S LABORATORY, makers of "Unrivalled Rennet Tablets" and "Ripening Cream" and the "Most Perfect Coloring on the Market"







THE THATCHER MFG. CO.  >> Possibly one of the most terrifying ads ever.






F. B. FARGO & CO.  << pushing the limit on how many negatives you can fit into one ad



Any favorites?
