Sears Roebuck and Co. 1909

Ever wonder what prices were 101 years ago? 
This little catalog will tell you.
The price of the catalog itself surprised me.  For $3.95, you could purchase the catalog.
Last time at J.C. Penney, I could purchase a catalog for $5.00.  And the new J.C. Penney catalog was 50X bigger than this 300 page catalog  which measures 4" by 6".   Well now they have more marketing sense I guess.  Let's see what we can find inside.

Banjos ranging from $2.45 to $19.65.  Wow !!!  I'll take the $19.45 University Glee Banjo.

For the Gun collectors out there!
Remember! You can double click to enlarge.
