AHHHH the Good Ole Days when a Dollar was a Dollar

Was in the mood to go shopping and spend some money. Well it was so hot and miserable I decided to just stay home and not spend my money after all. As I sat contemplating the issue I started reminiscing about mail order catalogs. I use to love looking thru them and wishing the dollars away. Rarely did I ever order anything,but apparently many people did. Kinda like today, so many people shopping online. I have always been one who wanted to touch,smell,handle the item before purchase so I guess that is why I seldom ordered from a catalogue or never do any online shopping.
Anyway I spent some time online searching for old catalogue ads out of Sears&Roebucks, Montgomery Ward, etc from the 1920's thru the 1940's. Let me further say,I was born in the 1950's, so these are even before my time.   Hope you enjoy !!
