the end of the nineteenth century, and, with one catalog, you can
buy everything from beds and tools to clothing and opium. (Yes,
opium.) Not to mention ear trumpets, horse buggies, and Bibles.
The 1897 Sears, Roebuck & Co. Catalogue is both a wonderfully fascinating
collector's item and a valuable piece of American history. What
was once standard household fare is today a sometimes strange, often
funny look at what life was once like for the average American family.
