Abstract A collection of advertising fliers, brochures, booklets and catalogs for household appliances and products, all aimed specifically at women, dating from the 1860s to the 1930s. The collection includes trade catalogs for heating sources, stoves, porcelain sinks, vacuums, "wear-ever" cookware, carpet sweepers, irons, wringers, and "ready to eat" food products; fliers for labor-saving laundry soap, and a dryer that dries without a wringer; a commercial laundry price list; and brochures.
Dates: 1870s-1930s
