I just got my new(to me anyway) 1932 Sears spring/summer catalog. It full of all kinds of cool garden tooling, seeders, and the 1932 Handiman (made by Walsh) tractor. This will be a valuable resource item for id'ing differnt makes of stuff i have and find. As time goes on i'll try to scan some of the pages and post in here of the many differnt items one could find at Sears before the war, and during the depression

Those old Sears catalogs are something to behold!! When I was growing up, My mother and my grandmother had a lot of the old ones from the '50s and '60s. Wish I still had them!!

Old catalogs are cool. I love looking at them. The old popular mechanics are online. Really neat to look thru.

yes i rember going to my grandpas house when i was little, and having "to go"to the outhouse to do #2 in the dark,had to carry a flashlight to see. If you only had to do #1 you could use the chamber pot that was under the bed. But you had to clean it in the morning first thing......
