This grotty old book is my cooking textbook from school.
I started using it in 1972 when I was in grade 7 and it has travelled around with me ever since.
This copy dates from 1969 and originally belonged to my cousin.
The book was first published in 1966 and I believe is still in print today though I am sure it has been updated many times.
I thought you might be interested in the Family finance section.
If you click on the picture you can see a bigger version, click again and it should be bigger still.
How does it measure up with your budget plan?
