Wouldn’t it be nice if the price of groceries were the same now as they were in the early part of the 20th century? For example, Holland Creamery Butter would be 33 cents a pound (as of May 22nd, 1912). Yes, I know. I’m dreaming. I guess all those Holland butter cookies (yum, yum) I could’ve made with the extra grocery money will just have to wait.
**The Holland Butter Co. was established in 1869 by George Linn.
