    Brian,
    Just love this picture of the Sear Roebuck and Company sign. When I was a boy almost everyone, and especially rural folk, got basic things from Sears by use of their catalog. Clothes, hardware, and a plethora of other useful things were ordered and arrived in the mail. The thick catalog, not only was a source for household and personal items, but served another vital purpose. When the thick book got old and was replaced by a newer edition, the old one’s pages served many a family as toilet paper. Though not as comfortable as store bought paper, it accomplished the purpose and was a lot cheaper. Every outhouse had a Sear catalog.
