Bet this catalog has all the cool off grid stuff!

Like the Maytag kickstart gasoline powered Wash-machine! These were very cool! A friend of mine has two of these and they still run! lol.

I've seen

a 20 Gauge shotgun that was stamped manufactured by sears.

Monkey Wards did too

Montgomery Wards did this too, I used to have one, I am pretty sure both were made by Savage Stevens.

We had one at an old country house,

turn-of-the-century edition. A treasure trove!

Once, there was an original copy of a magazine printed in September of 1929, and all through it was how things were going so damn well that America had indeed reached the golden age. 4 years later, the people gave up their gold.
