Default 1890 Garden and Tomato Advertisements

I came across some ads for various garden suppliers in an issue of Lippincott's magazine from February of 1890, and thought they would be fun to share as a curiosity.

Tomatoes mentioned by name are: Lorillard, Cumberland Red, and Peach.

Suppliers with ads in the magazine are: A.D. Cowan & Co., Wm. H. Moon Co., D.M. Ferry & Co., W. Atlee Burpee & Co , Landreth & Sons, Parsons & Sons Co., Critchell & Co., Henry A Steer, Alfred Bridgeman, C.W. Park, F B. Mills, Johnson & Stokes. Listing out all the names so they're indexed for search.

Note: Lippincott's Magazine ran monthly from 1868 to 1916. Many of the original magazines are expensive to purchase, but full text for many issues is available online.

Here are the photos!
