The Garden Magazine, Nov. 1917






The magazine had no cover, and was ragged and stained.
Still, something about it caught my eye, so I paid my 25 cents and came home with a treasure trove of old advertisements and a glimpse into the world of nearly a hundred years ago!

In total, I came home with tattered and coverless copies of this magazine from 1913, 1914, 1915 and 1917!!!

All for a dollar.

The first thing I scanned from the pages of my treasure was this "Stewarts Iron Fence" advertisement. Because ... It's time for "Fridays Fences"!
