This print is a quality reproduction of a page from an original general store merchandise catalog published between 1912 to 1918 by J. H. Ashdown Hardware Co. Limited Calgary Winnipeg Saskatoon established 1869. The pictures are crisp and show fine details just like the original catalog's black and white engravings.
This catalog covered everything a homesteader needed at the turn of the century including apparel tools furniture toys guns appliances baby carriages hardware household linens jewelry watches carriages saddles etc . We have reproductions of selected pages that are of general interest to collectors of early 1900s Americana. Similar to the old Sears Roebuck and Co. catalogs except these were kept at the general store and not widely circulated.
The displayed image above is a low-resolution graphic optimized for quick web display. The actual print you receive will be a detailed high-resolution print free of any defects or watermarks.
The artwork is printed in black on archival quality acid-free 8 1/2" x 11" simulated parchment stock replicating the authentic look and feel of the original catalog page that is now over 90 years old. The actual artwork image will fit perfectly in a certificate display frame (8 1/2" x 11").
This prestigious museum quality print is perfect for framing or mounting as you wish in any home or office as decorative wall art. Keep for yourself or great for gift giving to the avid collector. Great conversational piece especially the pricing from yesteryear! Fascinating reading!
