    I have a similar ad from a Thurm’s Annual that has this old bread rebaked; in case anyone is wondering – that means “thrifty” ship’s captains brought in moldy, bug-infested, soggy bread that hadn’t gotten eaten on last voyage & Love’s put it in oven – hopefully killing the bad stuff – of course it would come out like a hockey puck !
    Isb. Bird in Six Months in Sand. Is tells about the bread on inter-island ships being bug infested ‘have to pick over every piece’
    On other hand in 1860s reporting of 4th July in Honolulu Mr. Love’s party was said to have the best desserts in city …. A Manning
