school furniture
Description:
The new school year has begun. So we decided to search the Trade Literature Collection for catalogs showing school furniture or supplies. And we came across this Robert Paton catalog which shows the furniture students in 1872 might have seen on their first day of school. The catalog is titled Illustrated Catalogue of School Furniture, <a href="http://blog.library.si.edu/2014/09/its-back-to-school-in-1872/#more-'" class="more-link">more &#187;</a>
