10 Luscious New Cakes subtitle: Made by Spry's amazing new one-bowl method
Spry is a mostly-defunct brand of vegetable shortening that competed with the now-better-known Crisco. Produced by Lever Bros., it was available in the USA from 1936 until sometime in the 1970s. This pamphlet has a note "LEVER Golden Jubilee USA 1895-1945" so it was probably published around 1945.
