Print for Your Potting Shed Wall?

I think I'll go with the Burpee 1901 and maybe the daffodil catalog cover! Here's another - Alneer Brothers(?)! You can click on the image above. It will take you to the Smithsonian pages where you can save, edit and print your own.

Love that picture! Brings back the "olden days" memories!

RE: Print for Your Potting Shed Wall?

I had thought about posting the front cover of the 1901 Burpee catalog. Using an abundance of caution with regards to copyright, I did not. The Smithsonian has "their" copyright information at the bottom of the page & I read that but they mentioned "3rd parties."

The picture above was edited a bit - the paper had come off a little on the watermelon rind. Picasa has good editing tools. Some of the catalogs are missing corners or have been folded . . . I don't know why someone decided to put an "X" in blue ink on some . . . a lot can happen in a century, I suppose.

Be sure to look thru using the various search boxes. For example, if you look just for "Livingston Seed" - you only get ONE catalog!! If you search "Tomatoes" - you get a dozen Livingston catalogs!
