All your 1922 Shopping needs...right here

Sear & Roebuck? Bah!  Monkey Ward? Ha!  In 1922, there was no more comprehensive compendium of wholesale and retail items than the Butler Brothers catalog. Here is a taste:
 I found this a month ago in a local antique store,very disorganized ( my kind of place) and stacked to the rafters with stuff. This catalog caught my eye and I couldn't leave without it.

I have left these fairly large, but you can click on each for even larger to appreciate the detail in seeing the variety and selection of items. I will provide more pages from this catalog soon.
