The Anna Louise Inn, in Cincinnati, Ohio, is one of the few surviving facilities originally built for young inexperienced working women, that was built during the late 1800s and early 1900s. Established in 1909, the Inn has remained a safe haven by opeining its doors to a diverse population of women of all ages, from 18 years through retirement. It remains an operation of the Cincinnati Union Bethel, the oldest social service agency still in existence west of the Alleghenies.
A beautiful book with satin-finished pages and ribbon marker makes a beautiful gift for yourself or others. In addition to the tested recipes, this book is for anyone interested in the social history of single women throughout the last century and the styles that they wore. Each decade of the Inn’s history is presented before each recipe category along with an overview of the styles worn during that decade. Stories from women who lived there and many photographs and illustrations are included.
