SARAH’S FAVORITE, 3″ Dark

19 Sarahs Favourite
Today’s Block

Sarah’s Favorite first appeared in 1897, as a Ladies At Company block. Although, apparently the girl’s name is somewhat negotiable: Nancy Cabot gave it Sally’s Favorite in 1934, and in 1935, it appeared as Sara’s Favorite. I have given the name the American spelling of favourite, as it was originally published … even though I had to edit it every time, as my typing fingers wouldn’t agree!
