Years ago I posted a tidbit about Montgomery Ward Catalogs. You can follow the link here to read the old post.
Finding links to online sources for this catalog are difficult to come by. You can find many replica copies of the catalogue for sale on ebay. My copy is the fall & winter catalogue of 1894-95.
What is the advantage for a historical author to use a catalogue like Montgomery Ward for their novel? Besides showing the price of items from that time period. You also see what were the interests at that time. Games, Books, equipment of all kinds, etc.
I have found one link to a source.
Montgomery Ward & Co. Common Cookery 1897
