This is an advertisment for Freeman's Egg Powder. Eggs are great source of protein and iron but buying fresh eggs in the 19th century was very expensive. This was because they had to be transported by rail from the countryside to the towns and cities. For those who could not afford to buy fresh eggs, egg powder was available from grocers and butchers stores. The dried egg mixture could be added to cakes and puddings or could be mixed with milk or water and eaten on its own.
