This is simply a reprint of a catalog put out by the Jordan & Marsh department store in 1891. The value of this publication is the view of clothing or fashion trends for women, men, and children, along with the furnishings they used in everyday life. In the back are advertisements for special items sold by the store. The prices and the uses of certain items, such as a mask that was designed to replace harmful cosmetics for women, make one realize that our time is very different from the Victorian era in 19th Century America.
