POST CARDS, MUSIC & BOOKS
Finding old text books, post cards
and sheet music in a country curiosity shop
can show how much times have changed.
Before computers, before calculators,
before adding machines . . .
there was a handy reference book
for households, farms, tradesmen, mechanics:
The World's READY RECKONER,
an invaluable assistant for calculating
practical solutions to almost everything . . .
coming up with an amount and value
of any number of calculations:
board feet of lumber, interest tables,
dollars and cents, tax tables,
decimal values of fractions, the amount of feed
for your hogs during the summer season.
"Saves time, money & worry
with this rapid calculator."
(The world was a simpler place in 1900.)
