For a very long time, I have based several of my modern recipes on vintage ones.

BEEF POT ROAST
Brown in some suet, two medium sized Spanish onions, with teaspoon of paprika, put in beef cut in small pieces and wiped perfectly dry. Brown on both sides, turning several times, until real brown; cover tightly and place weight on lid so steam cannot escape. Cook half hour, remove lid and season well with salt and pepper. Cover again, cook slowly until tender. If you like, put potatoes in about half hour before serving. Lift out when done and make brown gravy. Meat is cooked in its own juice and is delicious.—(Mrs. F. M. Locy.)
BAKED WHITE FISH
Place a whole fish when cleaned and dry, in bake-pan. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Pour over it one-half tea cup of melted butter, place on this three large tomatoes crushed or cut up. Bake in a moderate oven for one to one and one-quarter hours.
(Mrs. F. M. Locy.)
Cut a slice of ham 1/2 inch thick. Soak it in milk over night. Rinse it in the morning and place in shallow pan. Cover with brown sugar, bread crumbs, pepper and bits of butter. Bake 1 hour in hot oven.
