Description "GROWERS' SALES COMPANY PLANT CATALOG, AUTUMN 1926"
Color: Orange
A 32-page plant catalog issued by Growers' Sales Company, 1926. The orange-colored front cover has a dual-line border with the date "AUTUMN 1926" at the top and an illustration of a tulip below. Toward the bottom is the product name and the company name and headquarters. The back cover is a listing, with a photograph, of an arbor vitae with prices by size and a brief description. The company name and location is at the bottom. On the inside front over is a description of some products, while the first page lists bargains. Subsequent listings include flowers of all kinds, with the centerfold listing for roses. Vines, shrubs and bushes are next, followed by fruits. Ferns, palms and a few other plants join shade and ornamental trees at the end. Listings include brief descriptions of the products; prices in each and quantity; and, in many cases, photographs. The last page is an order form with lines for the date; purchaser's address; town; state; nearest express office; amount of order with fifteen cents packing and postage preprinted; total remittance; and columns for quantity, name of the article; and price with a total box at the bottom right. The inside back cover has listings for evergreens. Fading, discoloration and some surface soiling are on the cover, while there are creases on most pages, so the object is in fair condition.
