1888 - A Victorian Idyll, Storrs & Harrison Catalog

Storrs & Harrison, the nursery and seedsmen from Painesville, Ohio had extremely plain catalogs for most of their history.  For a few years, though, they gave color a shot on their covers, usually having these vignettes as part of the design.  

This is the back cover of the 1888 issue.
