This reprint of the Fall 1900 Sears, Roebuck and Co. Consumers Guide is very interesting. In 1900 my four great grandfathers were: Jasper Pascal Brown, 35 years old; Thomas K. Mark, 21 years old; Michael Coyle. 30 years old; and Leopold Gartner, 40 years old. All were living in the United States and any or all of them may have browsed or purchased items from the Sears ‘Consumers Guide’.
Here are just a few items from the Fall 1900 selections:
Nickel plated pocket watch $.98; gold filled ladies pocket watch with diamond in cover $9.50; sterling silver hair brush $3.50; upright parlor piano in walnut or mahogany $98.50; the Oakwood guitar $3.50
Royal blue marble, 22” Tombstone $13.75; 16” high fireproof safe $6.25; Steel Kitchen Range for coal or wood $21.20; New model Acme Prince Bicycle $14.75
