The Minneapolis journal., September 04, 1905, Page 3, Image 3Where can you find a corset for 49 cents and a 3/4 length mink coat for $110?

During the past few weeks I have found myself spending more and more time on the Chronicling America website. Looking at old newspapers often leads to fun discoveries.   This ad from the Minneapolis Journal, September 4, 1905 by the Evans, Johnson, Sloane Company offers a sale "that has never had an equal". The interactive features of Chronicling America let you zoom into a specific paragraph to read text or print the image.
