This ad for Woods and Malfet (presumably a butcher shop) ran during January 1906 in the Portage La Prairie Weekly. How things have changed! Today we would advertise the deliciousness of bacon and gloss over the fact that it isn’t very healthy. In 1906 they trumpeted the extra calories (useful to farmers in the cold, but not so useful to most sedentary jobs today) and declared that it would keep you in shape. Of course, you had to have them properly cured as Woods and Malfet surely did, for maximum nourishment. If you needed a tub of lard, the fine folks at W & M had you covered there, too. Just ask the operator for 71.
