Notes:
Jane Parker was one of the in-house store brand names created by the Great Atlantic and Pacific Tea Company (A&P) grocery chain. A&P was the first grocery chain and the credited inventor of the "supermarket". Within each store was a full service bakery. To advertise their specialty cakes, A&P employed leading food photographers to photograph their cakes; these photographs were lithographed by the Litho-Krome Company and combined into a promotional book for distribution among the Jane Parker bake shops. Photographers included George Greb, Nickolas Muray, Charles Thill and Leon DeVos.
Summary:
Book containing laminated pages illustrating cakes available for order, baked by the Jane Parker Pastry Chefs for A&P Groceries.
