What a funny advertisement from the 1800s! This antique little red riding hood had a mission to grandmother's house! Red Riding Hood had a little cocoa powder in her basket, and now she's fixing hot chocolate for her grandmother. Little does she know that it's a wolf in her grandmother's bed. I always wondered why she didn't recognize the fact that there was a wolf in the bed, not red's grandmom. A mystery we'll never know.
About the Vintage Red Riding Hood Image
This Little Red Riding Hood advertisement was for Fry's Pure Concentrated Cocoa. "A charming drink for young and old. Tis almost worth its weight in gold." The illustration is in browns and tans, and Little Red Riding Hood has a little red bonnet in this illustration, which must have been more fashionable in the Victorian era. The wolf is in the bed, and he is wearing a white bonnet.
