1908 Catalog items.
« on: April 10, 2021, 05:53:24 PM »
Weird stuff (nothing sexual) from a 1908 catalog for mail order.  It's not a Sears & Roebuck catalog.

That's some pretty wild stuff coming out of their finest state of the art factory. People must have been a glutton for punishment back then.

1st world problems from 1908:

How does one chose between the Rollicking Mustang Goat or the "Improved" Ferris wheel goat?

Also wonder what the "improvement" was over the 1st generation Ferris wheel goat?

I stumble across stuff all the time and if it's interesting, I'll post it for everyone's consumption.   :grin:  A by-product of history training and a Chinese memory.   :shocked:

I had the same thoughts.  Just some weird stuff to purchase.  Probably because of more time on your hands to think of weird stuff.  No internet or tv.   :grin: :grin: :grin:
